Hello Gerard,
I have never seen this particular flowering plant before. it is quite pretty. From what I could see of it's stem it reminded me of a type of dandelion, so had to look it up on the web. Sure enough I found out it is in the Dandelion family and can see a resemblance to it's flower.
You did a wonderful job on exposure as it appears to have been photographed in full sunlight, which many times completely blows out the color yellow. Focus is sharp allowing us to view the entire frame in sharp detail. Great work!!
