I didnt check the foliage, the Apiaceae or Umbelliferae is a large family of plants and quite a few are lethally poisonous, think of Socrates and hemlock. But our carrots are related family.
Here with Artimisia vulgaris on an industrial site.

Jacobaea vulgaris, syn. Senecio jacobaea, is a very common wild flower in the family Asteraceae that is native to northern Eurasia, usually in dry, open places, and has also been widely distributed as a weed elsewhere.

Lilium cultivar called by some tiger lily, by others Turk's cap. Some are vibrant orange, many are pink. This particular plant greatly prefers limited sunlight: it receives about two hours of direct sunshine in mid morning and dappled light through the grove of Post Oak (Quercus stellata) for the remainder of the day.

D850, 1/80, Otus 55/1,4 @ f16, ISO 800. Conditions were far too windy to consider making a stack at a more reasonable aperture. The flowers point down, I used a Saucier FlowerPod to adjust the flower to point perhaps 30° below horizontal.

I really like the second rose - what lens did you use Zang?

Thanks Daniel,

The Lily was taken using Canon FD 85mm f1.8 that I have rebuilt recently. Both the roses were taken using Contax Zeiss Planar 50mm f1.4 that I ordered new from Germany in 1997.
