121/365: Twin yuccas in bloom

Twin yuccas in bloom at Presidio la Bahia, Goliad. We've visited the old mission before, but never the presidio across the river. I was impressed with both the preservation and reconstruction, and hope to return someday. Yuccas were in full bloom all over the grounds, and this pair was doing its thing at the southwest corner of the old fort. Lots of black-throated humming birds were squabbling over the flowers, wanting to keep the nectar all to themselves. I suspected the plants would contrast nicely against the stone walls in infrared, and it appears that I was correct.
