Summer Wildlife on Lake Barcroft

With the temperature hovering near 90 on land, Lake Barcroft offered cool breezes, especially in the shade, as I set out on a late morning kayak trip. 

I observed all manner of flying things and even one creepy crawly thing.

Is this a gadwall or a mallard?

A great blue heron nest high in the pines. No babies yet!

 All types of dragonflies:

This was a big one!

Hungry fledgling barn swallows, in anticipation of feeding
Momma arrives!
"Hey, what about me?"

At the end of the ride, bringing the kayak to the racks on Beach 3, I came across this giant crawfish. He was scary big! I couldn't resist taking lots of photos of him.
