Ferns are non-flowering plants that will never flower. So OP's pics aren't flower but something else.
Maybe Mayflys?..a joke. But who knows,maybe aquatic insects who crawl over them at the right time pollinate them...and when the water goes down in the dry season,seeds ripen then fall off.
But yeah,hard to imagine pollen sticking to bugs underwater...never know.
