A bluebell bud

Bluebell Bud 9980A

Yesterday you saw a flower of Eustoma exaltatum ssp. russellianum, a species known as bluebell, bluebell gentian, and prairie gentian. That July 29th picture came from land at the southeast corner of Dessau Rd. and Wells Branch Parkway on the Blackland Praire in northeast Austin. I’d stopped there the previous day, but only after photographing for a couple of hours elsewhere, so by then I was tired and didn’t stay long. Still, I did spend enough time on July 28th for a few photographs, including this abstract and elongated one showing the twists and counter-twists of a bluebell bud.
