Potentilla only, but it is impossible to identify species without leaves.

It seems I have failed to convince members about the importance of leaves, stipules, bracts etc. One shot less of flowers and one close up leaves would greatly help in its identification. This is especially true of Geranium species also, and possibly all genera.

you have not failed we hear you but like … here I also end up going out with nonphotographers they rush you when you want to take pictures their priorities are different, even though they may like you or love you
or are very kind otherwise… still its a drag… sometimes works against our resolve to take all the appropriate pictures…

Actually we are so preoccupied with the flower, we forget to notice the leaves only !!, then after moving some distance we think, we should have taken the leaves photos also.
