    Left/red/pink/looking under the bluer it could be some thing/to hard to tell though.

    I don't know. Group of 5 stars?

    The triple red feature centre left is strange/interesting: I think it's lensed.

    The 'lensed' images are too big for the 'lensing' galaxy. No lens, sorry

    The size of the lensed images depends on how the lens' mass falls with radius, rather than the size of the lens. So that's not a problem

    But the sources aren't in a plausible configuration around the 'lens' (I'd expect a third at ~6 o'clock)

    This could be a lens if the source is 2 distinct (probably merging) galaxies, with two counter images buried under the 'lens'

    But that would be a rare kind of lens (but not impossible): I don't think it's a lens, but it has an outside chance.

    My bet is two distant galaxies merging, and a foreground star.
