  • Terri Carter, Rita Blanca EC: “The sunrise colors are really multiplied by the ice that coated this fence. It melted some and slid down a bit, then it froze again.”
  • Jessika Morris, Navasota Valley EC: “This photo was captured while my daughter Dixie was leaning over a barbed wire fence so that she could get to know one of the newest horses on the farm.”
  • Travis LaCoss, Pedernales EC: The Rita Blanca National Grasslands in the Panhandle.
  • Ashley Zimmerman, Trinity Valley EC: “I go for many walks on our property and I always take my camera. This bobcat came out to pose for me one lucky afternoon.”
  • Debra Bentley, PenTex Energy: “Raindrops bring this intricate web on a barbed wire fence into focus after a rain near Era.”
  • Web Extra: Leigh Manning, Bryan Texas Utilities: “This was taken in the spring at a ranch near Burnet.”
  • Web Extra: Ken Haase, Concho Valley EC: “Frozen barbed wire in Christoval.”
  • Web Extra: Marion Moore, Wood County EC: “English lady spotted this beast resting whilst driving the back roads around Lake Gilmer—now this is Texas!”
  • Web Extra: Lori Falcon, Taylor EC: “Cowboys do more than doctor and rope cattle and ride horses. Fencing is part of the job.”
  • Web Extra: James Jordan, Farmers EC: “Taken in Fredericksburg while looking at bluebonnets. The fence has a boot on top of every post as the fencing goes down the road.”
  • Web Extra: Kay Bell, Nueces EC: “This fence in the badlands of the Big Bend country has seen better days. Was it to keep cows in or out?”
  • Web Extra: Jonnie England, Nueces EC: “A fence made of tree limbs and barbed wire makes a dramatic backdrop for a field of colorful Indian blankets in the Texas Hill Country.”
  • Web Extra: Kay Bell, Nueces EC: “The ocotillo, found in the Big Bend, has been used for hundreds of years as a living fence. The stalks are cut and woven into a ‘fence’ then planted, and they regrow. Each ocotillo stalk is covered with thorns and makes a great fence.”
  • Web Extra: Joan Weed, CoServ: “This fence post displays the old and new. The old moss-covered post with both old and new barbed wire stands near Yantis.”
