The Colour is Blue, Blue, Blue and very poisonous...

This is one of the most poisonous plants in Europe and its toxins can be adopted already via the skin. Famous for "Chinese" murders - but the colour is an incredible blue....

"Aconitum napellus" (Ranunculaceae)
monkshood, Eisenhut

Beautiful but deadly.

At first glance they looked like butterflies.

Your pictures are truly wonderful.

That's what I also thought - in German language this fammily of plants is called "butterfly bloomer"
