|[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note|
The term weed in its general sense is a subjective one, without any classification value, since a "weed" is not a weed when growing where it belongs or is wanted. Indeed, a number of "weeds" have been used in gardens or other cultivated-plant settings. An example is the corncockle, Agrostemma, which was a common field weed exported from Europe along with wheat, but now sometimes grown as a garden plant.
Professor Richard C. Lewontin of Harvard University defines weeds as plants that create environmental conditions in which it cannot reproduce. He takes the example of pine trees that crowd out sunlight such that its own offspring cannot grow. Weeds continue to exist, because the environment is continually being disturbed to create open conditions for new generations, such as forest fires and human activity.

If this is a weed in the common sense then it has a beautiful flower. It looks like it is a monocotyledenous plant that has a bulb at the root, like a crocus or a lily.
This is a fine capture of the flower taken from a good POV to show a small bee in it with good sharpness and well composed against a pleasing OOF natural BG.
TFS this image of a beautiful weed,

Thanks for visit and kind comments as well as for opportunity to meet your nice shot collection. You have shared a very pleasant picture of a fine flower and its guest. I like POV and composition a lot. Details and colours of the flower petals are sweet and green smooth BG is so nice as a main subject. My compliments and best wishes.
Linda e lÝmpida captura, ainda mais com o bonus de uma abelha.
