Very nice shot
Do you have the western version there, too?

 
Probably not
Not according to the range map in my field guide (the Kaufman one) by Jim P. Brock. I am in central Texas, and the only part colored in that map is extreme west Texas. Thanks for the kind words.

 
I've shot a ton of these
but never found that angle.

 
Well...
It was definitely a lucky shot, but thanks again. My only trick is to have a big memory card, and stand around for a long time taking pictures, hoping some will turn out well.
