‘BUSY AS BEES’ — Shutterbugs have been having a field day this week snapping photos of wildflowers that are now blanketing the undulating hills of Gillespie County in blues, reds, yellows, pinks, whites … well, you get the picture. We are asking readers of the Fredericksburg Standard-Radio Post to submit their best 2014 wildflower photos (yes, cute kids are allowed) and we’ll post them to our Facebook page. Some of the best pictures might even find their way into print — like this early submission by Tucker Findley, who captured a bluebonnet-hovering bee on Fisher Bonn Road. Send photos at their highest resolution possible as separate .jpg attachments to: [email protected] or drop off a copy at the newspaper office, 712 West Main Street. Be sure to include your name, the names of anyone in the photo (left to right,) where the photo was taken, as well as your address and daytime phone number so we have a way to get in touch.
