This one may be a little hard as there is no flowers and it is a large plant hard to get a picture of.
Looks something like a huge hard leave fern

Sandy: That looks to be a Cycad of some sort, maybe Zamia?

It does not have a trunk that can be seen. And it is huge, all the leave stalks seem to be growing out of the ground
Here is one growing in the water, not a great picture but hope it will help

Sandy: The plant looks like a Zamia of some sort to me but I'm not certain.

As it is not a plant I guess it is alright to post.
It was at the other end of the stream.

IN the future tell me where I can post "other picture" where you can see them.

It might be a light form but the colors are way to bright and light
