Bluebell Bud and Tightly Rolled Flower 8526

It recently became the time of year again in central Texas for bluebells, Eustoma exaltatum. I photographed this sinuous configuration of a bud and a still-constricted flower on a piece of the Blackland Prairie adjacent to Interstate 35 north of Howard Lane. I must have spent an hour of that July 6th morning sitting among the bluebells, and I came away with plenty of photographs but also a couple of dozen chigger bites for my trouble.
