Monkshood
Aconitum delphinifolium delphinifolium

Monkshood is a highly poisonous plant if eaten by livestock or people. The flowers are very unusual. These are seen from the front and the side. The species name delphinifolium means "delphinium-leaved". Delphin means "dolphin" alluding to the dolphin-like bud of the larkspur, which is another delphinium.
