    I had heard of these but I had never seen any before the other day. They are a strain of Bluebonnet without pigmentation, not sure what causes it. Trying to capture them caused me some concern. Tell me what you think.

    #4 is definately my favorite. Every once in a while we see the white ones mixed in with the blues around here, but not very often. Where did you take these shots?

    I live in the Dallas area these were taken on Hwy 408 southbound side just before the exit to eastbound I20.

    408 has some of the best patches. Look at this thread of ShutteredEye He took pics in the same area and they are great.
