I think Thalictrum sp.
Leaves should help.

Unfortunately cannot get to leaves in any of the views I have.

May be Thalictrum elegans

Many thanks … for the possibility of Thalictrum elegans; the plant at efi thread with possibility of Thalictrum elegans seems to have a different looking inflorescence.

Yes … I overlooked this shoud not be T elegans

How about Thalictrum alpinum ?

Thalictrum alpinum. A dwarf species with leaves usually on surface only and usually identified by the flowering stalk only.
