|Flower of unidentified plant - possibly of the Family Apiaceae|
I think that the plant (flower above) belongs to the Family Apiaceae (or Umbelliferae) which is commonly known as the the carrot or parsley family. The reason I sat that is because the foliage and flower structure resemble that of Dacus carota (Carrot) and other members of Apiaceae. But I'm not entirely certain yet.

Incidentally both Family Asteraceae and Family Apiaceae belong to the Order Asterales.
