golden columbine, Aquilegia chrysantha

The queen of buttercups! Of course, she has to be yellow. But columbines, in all their finery, are far removed from a buttercup's everyday life. To me, columbine is the greatest creation of the buttercup family. Golden reigns over our western mountains in AZ, CO, NM, TX, and UT. Ouray Co CO, 6/21/13.
