We ended up at a quiet boat launch, where Charles did some more fishing & I sat nearby with my cameras.
Shortly after taking this photo of a spider walking on water, I watched a little bass chasing it from below. The fish weren't biting, so we headed back to the cabin, where Charles pointed out some lovely Indian pink flowers in our "backyard."
The heat of the day was oppressive so we had a nap. Afterwards we went to see the deer management area (on the park grounds.)
There were 3 large pens with relatively tame deer in them, all tagged. I'm not much for caging animals, so I turned my attention toward the purple passionflowers growing nearby.
This passionflower has a zebra longhorn beetle and a tumbling flower beetle on it. As the sun sank toward the horizon, Charles went fishing again, out behind our cabin. He finally caught this impressive monster.
Soon after, we were treated to another lovely sunset.
