These Goldenbeans are quite toxic. I found them in the foothills so I am not sure if they are the Mountain Goldenbean or the Prairie variety. Either way they are suspected of poisoning cattle and children and in some regions suspected of causing more human poisonings than any other plant, with large doses being fatal. The bee obviously doesn’t seem to be affected.
