Aconitum napellus

I've been watching this plant develop for a couple of months growing in deep shade in the High House woods. It has stood up to the heavy rain and high winds of late and came into flower last week. It is native in SW England and Wales but naturalised elsewhere. This is the first time I have seen this plant, it contains the alkaloid aconitine and is very poisonous.
