Lily on steroids

On my last visit to the farm, as I was strolling around I was surprisingly greeted by this single water lily plant with an explosion of leaves that covered almost half of this fish pond.

The flowers are just lovely to look at specially since they're all bunched up in the middle surrounded by leaves radiating outward from the center.

I have never seen a water lily growing so fondly like this. Its either the water is rich with the minerals it requires to grow or this lily is on steroids. One thing is for sure, the fishes are having a grand time partying under the cover of the leaves, away from the preying eyes of creatures who are just happy to have them for dinner.
