Aconite

A huge THANK YOU is due to Joline--- for her UA for the Fungus Abstract

Beautiful delicate image which belies this plants toxic nature. October Stormhatt in Scandinavia, the toxin is an alkaloid causing severe nausea and progressive bradicardia which can slow the heart so much to cause death. Accidental poisoning is unlikely as it tastes very unpleasant apparently, but the toxin can be absorbed through broken skin; florists, gardeners etc.
Interesting plant and great image.

The bokeh is perfect to set off this innocent looking bloom, Jenn. Its looks deceive!
