Sunny Spring Swamp Flowers

Sunny Spring Swamp Flowers

This is a picture from my first ever sighting of these beautiful and abundant sunny spring swamp flowers.

Their name is Caltha Palustris and are known as Marsh Merigold. Contrary to their name however, they are of the Buttercup family (Ranunculaceae) and not related to Merigolds which are of the Daisy family (Asteraceae).
