This image was taken last Friday whilst on a walk by the Lac du Salagou, an irrigation reservoir in Southern France.
The area abounds with wildlife and beautiful wild flowers.
I have no idea what type of flowers it is - I would be grateful if someone could tell me!!
I thought the red spots were just part of the flower - until I loaded the image onto my computer!
I should have put my glasses on!!Smile
Many appreciative thanks for all views, votes and comments on my last upload!Smile
Have a great Sunday.
Richard

Looks like the yellow species of chicory, and what a super capture, too. Carol

Welcome back Richard, hope you have had a good holiday! This flower is indeed part of the plant Cichorium Endivia or wild chicory as Carol above suggests. The leaves sometimes contain a blue tint and it is paradise for bugs and insects!! Smile
