Small Blue Flower

It is this season, too; stubborn field flowers still blooming away until, perhaps, the frost kills them, or they set those few more seeds that lead to there being a few more of their kind in the mix of plants next year.
Don't have the least idea what this is; the flower is very small, perhaps an inch across, and the stalk was easily a meter tall, and had more flowers than this one, which was half way up one side.
One of the FA100 Macro pictures that make me ever so glad I went for the last FA over the DA100, modest price premium or not, and aluminium brick or not.

chicory (cichorium intybus), also called blue sailors or coffeeweed. yes, that's the chicory from which the coffee substitute is made.

Oh, hey! A plant I have heard of! I might even have known it had blue flowers.

Thanks, fishy!
