Another side of the Larkspur

Yesterday, on a little shelf on the hillside above the river I came upon a group of Larkspur that were quite colorful and in good condition, and I chose to try some photos of one that was back inside some rather heavy brush and mostly out of the wind. I set an umbrella down in such a position that it shielded the flower from the wind and my camera from the rain and wriggled underneath on my belly to attempt a photo.

Here is what the lens saw there: an entirely different side of a Larkspur.

Another toxic plant with a pretty face.

I have read that this plant is responsible for the greatest cattle loss on national forest range land. I wonder why the Montana cattlemen don’t have the hired¬†thugs agents for the Montana Department of Livestock, Yellowstone National Park, Gallatin National Forest and Montana Fish, Wildlife & Parks out assaulting them like they are assaulting¬†America’s last wild bison!
