Hi, I'd be happy to lend one of my photos to your project. You can credit it to Scott Rasmussen. Thanks.

Thanks again for joining the mission on look alike buttercups! We're about to write up a final project summary and I'd like to use one of your photos (the flower shot) for our report.

Can we use your photo, and if so, what name would you like us to use to credit you? I'll post a link to the final report once we're done, let me know!

Hi,
I'll take a look at the mission. It really does look like marsh marigold. It's started to become a real problem in my area.

Hello!

We would love to have this spotting be a part of our mission on the distribution of native and invasive look-alike buttercups. The marsh marigold looks similar to the lesser celandine and many people get them confused. Feel free to join!
