Hi there!

That looks like the lesser celandine, based upon the shiny leaves.

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!
