Another shot from last week, and what a great name, the yellow flowers of this plant open in the bright morning sun and have closed up by noon, also known as 'goat's beard' from the seed head.(Tragopogon pratensis)

We have a similar species here- we call it a Salsify. Both phases are so lovely! I love this in B&W!
Stunning work John
