A close-up of the brightly red and yellow coloured flower of a wild columbine (Aquilegia canadensis). Captured in late May 2009 near Thessalon in rural Ontario, Canada.

Also known as Canadian Columbine , or (ambiguously) called “Red Columbine”, wild columbine is a wildflower of the Ranunculaceae family. Leaves are both basal and cauline, lobed and divided. The distinctive flowers appear in late spring, above the foliage. Flowers consist of coloured sepals, and petals elongated into a spur.
