Thank you everyone for your wonderful comments. Andrew, I'm sorry for not getting back to you on where it was taken...I just now saw your question. It was taken between Brady and Llano. I lucked out seeing them in this field next to the road, they are usually down over the cliff and you can't see them from the road. Thank you all for your comments and encouragement. It's very much appreciated. #597696

Wonderful image, Liz, and a very well deserved Second Place winner back in May! Phil and I just came across this one when it was featured on the Contest page, and I HAD to comment! What a beautiful 'beast' you captured here among the Texas Bluebonnets, and the late afternoon sun is perfect! Very well done indeed! :~) #749401

Mary-Ella Bowles level-classic 11/22/2004 2:48:37 PM

Well I missed this back in May as well (So many photo sites, so little time!!). This is a winner in every way, Liz - a classic image, that I totally love. A belated congrats, and keep up the good work! #932086

100-400mm Canon Zoom Lens. Aperture 5.6 at shutter speed of 500. The Longhorn was standing on the edge of a rolling hill. This helped the background be even more out of focus than what the zoom and aperture setting made it. The sun was also setting behind me to give this warm lighting onto the Longhorn and the flowers.
