Another water lily

This morning there's another water lily on the pond....
 ... it is tiny, unlike the blooms that appeared previously.

I first saw it yesterday afternoon....
 ..... peeking out from underneath one of the two remaining leaves on this plant.  One of the leaves is detatched this morning.  (The birds have been bathing.)  These leafy collectors of solar energy are all that powers the flower production, and the serious reduction in leaves has resulted in miniature flowers.
