Ranunculus repens-Ranunculaceae-creeping buttercup

This creeping buttercup was the most predominant flower to be found in the Hilfield meadow along with the common birdsfoot trefoil. Maybe it's predominance lies in its ability to grow taller than the more ground hugging plants. It has to compete with tall grasses in the meadow.

It is really important that photograph's of the leaves are posted too as there are a few and some can only be correctly identified by the leaf and stem. I know you have said that someone else has confirmed the type for you but we need to see for ourselves before agreeing.
