Meadow Buttercup

Ranunculus acris


A tufted erect herb to 20cm tall. A poisonous plant with sap causing the skin to blister. R. bulbous is similar but with less dissected leaves and sepals that curve down.


The Hover fly pictured came in to check out the flower just as I was taking the photo but quickly disappeared when the camera flash went off.
