To pin it down some more..

Where is the plant located? What country, part of your country?

Is it near a lake or in the middle of the mountains? Or on a plain?

Is this picture taken in spring or recently?

With the billion of species of plants out there, many of which are very similar to one another, one would need to narrow down the results.

It is located in Missouri in the woods. I think it's near a creek, but I'm not sure. It was taken recently. It was near a rock wall. I didn't take the picture, a relative did.

It appears to be a wild Poinsettia, which is indeed a member of the Euphorbia family.
One way to check is to break off a small piece and if the stem "bleeds" a milk white, sticky substance..then, bingo...it is indeed in this family.
Do not....do not..do not ingest, burn nor roll this. They are toxic to humans.

Would be nice to dig it up and bring it back home. They like to be root bound, which explains the scraggly appearance. As the leaf/petals turn, it's also good to pinch off old growth and new, smaller growth.

This is the national flower of Mexico and they grow in most awesome abundance there.

Yes, it is wild poinsettia. I have killed hundreds of acres of it. It is a pain in the butt. I've been in fields and hear a popping sound, it is the seed head splitting and it will throw the seed several yards. Birds and deer love it.
