Rather few bees up here, but many flies... pollinators?

Different individual on the buttercup, but I guess the same species.

Description

They call it 'Northern Grass of Parnassius'. While it's not really grassy, I like the poetry of this common name.

I see our database prefers 'marsh grass of parnassus'. I think 'northern' superior in two ways:
1. Parnassus is a mountain, not a marsh. So what if this species prefers a humid substrate: we do not mix metaphors.
2. Found in the high-latitudes.

Icelanders think that their lamb/mutton are flavored by the animals eating several local plants: Crowberries for one. These taste vaguely like blueberries; I can't tell you about the lamb..

Location only approximate: hadn't thought I'd post this...

On a granite boulder next to the trail; now sagged down the slope and tipped to a 35 degree angle. I presume an old grinding stone.
