Beautifully composed with the contrast between the horrible barbed wire and the beautiful bluebonnets, they rival our bluebells wonderfully

A fine shot of this pretty field. Barbed wire used to catch on my pants when I tried to slid through between layers of barbed fences.

A sharp contrast between the harsh lines of the barbed wire and the soft beauty of the flowers.

I have probably said this before, but that color of blue is amazing.

I like the barbed wire with the bluebells--both remind me of my years in Texas.
