Pontederia cordata, commonly known as pickerelweed, is an aquatic plant native to the American continent. It grows in a variety of wetlands, including pond and lake margins across an extremely large range from eastern Canada south to Argentina. 

This shot is from South Carrying Road Lake in southwest Nova Scotia, where I took a late summer overnight trip. The weather was beautifully clear, which meant a risk of frost. When I got up in the morning it was two degrees Celsius and absolutely still. A thick mist lay on the lake until mid-morning.
