Ranunculaceae キンポウゲ科  Aquilegia オダマキ属

The genus name Aquilegia is derived from the Latin word for eagle (aquila), because the shape of the flower petals, which are said to resemble an eagle’s claw. The common name “columbine” comes from the Latin for “dove”, due to the resemblance of the inverted flower to five doves clustered together.

Columbine (aquilegia)
This yellow columbine (Aquilegia chrysantha) — it is hard to tell Petal and Sepal. 😀


Columbines are usually facing down, so I have to shoot up from low.
