A flowering plant, I'm not sure what it could be. It stands at around 130cm tall, and seems to be great at attracting honey and bumble bees.
This one's confusing me. The flowers are higher than the unopened buds, suggesting B. rapa subsp. sylvestris, but the basal leaves are undivided. Hybrid? Or am I just way off?

Two large plants due to flower and lots of seedlings. Control has been promised. In residential red zone.
Oh no, didn't need this in the ponds. Control programme being planned.

I assume this skinny E. pustulosa is a male.
It's been skulking around the outsides of a web with a big "normal" looking E. pustulosa for at least the last 10 days.
real hard to get a pic of.
I think a small E. pustulosa ?
Any other thoughts ??
