Persistently orange

DAY 213 (4 NOVEMBER) – Common lantana (Lantana camara) (Vejer)

Yes I know it’s bright and cheerful, but I do find these shrubs quite dull. Took this photo at dusk, hence the very soft focus but at least it makes it look more interesting… These are all over the south of Spain, but are native to the American tropics. They are invasive in many tropical and sub-tropical areas – and in Sri Lanka are considered a “significant weed” since they escaped from the botanical gardens in 1926.
