Marsh Marigolds (Caltha palustris)

I stopped tonight on my way home from Maine at Verona Beach State Park. I found Marsh Marigolds (Cowslips, Caltha palustris) in flower in the marsh there. The flowers that were starting to go by turned white. Marsh marigolds are in the buttercup family (Ranunculaceae) and have multiple styles and many stamens.
