Flower for the Day Arctic Buttercup - Greenland 10-27

 During our recent trip to Greenland the buttercup (Ranunculous) was the Queen. It was in full bloom everywhere.
It can usually be distinguished from other yellow arctic flowers because the petals and sepals have a waxy shine, as if coated with plastic. 

And here it fills the meadows in Brattahlid, the site of Eric the Great's estate.
