POTD: Buttercup (Ranunculus spp.)

One of the many buttercups that occur in Idaho. I’m not positive on the species. Taken June 2017

All ranunculus species are poisonous when eaten fresh by cattle, horses, and other livestock, but their acrid taste and the blistering of the mouth caused by their poison means they are usually left uneaten.
