This looks like one of the beggar's ticks. Bidens frondosa is a good possibility: http://www.fcps.edu/islandcreekes/ecology/devils_beggar-tick.htm

It looks like it is about to produce flowers. When that happens, you can identify it more easily. You can send us another photo, attached to this reply, if you like. It's a good plant for wildlife.
