Plant ID Please

Celina, TX(Zone 7b)

We just bought a new home. When the water went down by our pond, this plant sprung up everywhere, in places that had been underwater, but are now dry due to the summer heat.
Our pond will soon fill back up, and I would love to make sure these come back since they attract a crazy amount of bees and butterflies.
First wondering what it is, and second wondering if I should leave the plants to reseed where they are,(this area will be underwater again before spring) or spread them around our fields.
When the plant was in bloom, the flowers were a light rose pinkish. If I need to take some more images, please just let me know. (I have been lurking around for years, but I am new to using the forums:)
Thanks so much! GG

I think what you have is Marsh Fleabane a very desirable plant, here is a link to learn more about it.

I would try to have some around the pond close to the edge where it won't be immersed in the water.

Thanks SO much! I had no idea what it was! You are correct. The flowers in the link are exactly what I have!
I suppose I will need to move some of them up the bank, since they will all be underwater soon!

You are welcome, happy to be of help.
I would move some and also scatter some seed.
