Spatterdock

 In shallow marsh water

Spatterdock is a native pond lily now in flower and is fairly common here in central Ontario where water moves slowly, as in this marsh.

AKA Cow Lily

I took a few very similar photos at a lake two days ago, but they were rubbish so I deleted them. Yours look better!

It looks quite different from the lily pads and flowers I see around here. You caught the reflection very well.

how pretty!

Kathy said...

They are really very different looking lilies from what I've seen before. That is a brilliant yellow and the insects evidently love them a lot!

Rose said...

They are beautiful! I have not seen a yellow water lily, but my hubby's cousin was telling us they had seen some. (It was somewhere I didn't have permission to go, so it did not stick with me where.)

Revrunner said...

I wonder how the cow lily got its name?

Geoff Wilkinson said...

Nice pictures, at first I thought it was a monster rising from the deep not just a lovely flower

Stephanie said...

Wow! Splendid shots!

Randy said...

That's interesting.

jandi said...

llandudnopictures said...

Very unusual!

Lowell said...

Never heard of this! Or, if it is a cow lily, I could say, I've never herd of it!

But I like very much.
