Water Crowfoot

Ranunculus aquatilis

It occurs in still waters, and ponds are often completely covered with the glossy, floating leaves.

The Water Crowfoot is not acrid, and cattle which have access to shallow waters where this plant grows, will wade out to feed upon it.

Flowering in May and June.
