I think the plant here is Ragwort with daisy-like yellow flowers in summer then dandelion-like seed heads. Photographed in October after the seeds have blown.
Shot with a 400mm lens at f/5.6 to bring out the foreground and then some post-processing treatment adding stained-glass-like colours to enhance the overall abstract look.

And another preening flamingo.
Loved the colours and shape formed by this flamingo as it contorts itself to preen.
I was struck by this view through a cellar window at Southwell Workhouse with outside looking as dismal as inside.
Another photograph captured on a wet day at Tarn Hows in the Lake District.
Loved the matching brightly coloured clothes and umbrellas of the women against the grey and misty lake. Also liked the juxtaposition of the umbrellas.
