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!

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.
