Captured in my garden this morning in the early morning light. I just adore Aquilegia (Columbine) plants.

Aquilegia (Columbine; from Latin columba “dove”) is a genus of about 60-70 species of perennial plants that are found in meadows, woodlands, and at higher altitudes throughout the Northern Hemisphere, known for the spurred petals of their flowers.
Flowers are edible in small quantities, but the roots and leaves are highly toxic.
