Yellow pond-lilies, also known as spatterdock, reaching up through the shallow, clear water of Yew Lake, Cypress Provincial Park.

The plants start out neatly spaced,

but eventually unfold to form a jumbled carpet on the surface.

Not to be confused with the fragrant waterlily, an eastern North American species that can become invasive.
