    Initially I read the update too quickly and thought the Sagittaria was lightly dusted in frost/snow, but upon further inspection you must just have a nice camera and caught all the little hairs & fibers on the plant. Awesome!

    I use a canon 50D with a 18-55mm lens. DSLR, but nothing crazy as far as I know, but it takes a good picture if I can get the focus right. I think they are some hairs on the plant as well as some moisture, the flower stalk does shoot right up outta the water.

    Great shots Greg, love seeing the Sabatia in bloom. The plant you have labeled as a Sagittaria is Pontederia cordata, Pickerelweed.

    Interesting, I was always led to believe all those arrowhead shaped marginals were Sagittaria. Looking at pictures now I can see some differences though. Good to know.

    Most of them are indeed Sagittaria around here. The flowers on Pontederia are a dead giveaway though, native Sagittaria flowers are all very similar in color and structure reguardless of species.
