You've handled the white balance superbly Nik, keeping that beautiful yellow opacity, love the way you've chose to focus this, fine work.

A weed is a flower in the wrong place,
a flower is a weed in the right place,
if you were a weed in the right place
you would be a flower;
but seeing as you’re a weed in the wrong place
you’re only a weed –
its high time someone pulled you out.

Please be assured the 'you' in the above poem is not intended to refer to you, Nick GrinGrin. I thought you might be amused by this little ditty, though!
Oh, and did I say it's a great shot? Wink. Well, it is - lovely clear detail.
