Wild Columbine - Aquilegia canadensis A gorgeous, nodding, red and yellow flower with upward spurred petals that alternate with spreading sepals and numerous yellow stamens that hang below the petals.<br />
<br />
 I found this patch growing on a slope in a deciduous forest.<br />
<br />
The genus name comes from the Latin word &quot;Aquila&quot; for eagle, referring to the talon-like shape of the nectar spurs on the flower. This plant is very attractive to long-tongued insects! <br />
