There were a lot of Canada geese around, but only this pair had chicks.
Before things got too hot, we finally made our way up the viewing tower, where this turkey vulture was soaring above the Bienville Nat'l Forest.
After another nap, I sat out on our back porch while Charles did more fishing. A great blue heron landed in our "backyard." I didn't budge until he'd moved away, not wanting to scare him off. Eventually I got a picture of him across the way.
Heading back inside, I got this photo of a bumblebee on spiderwort.
Having seen a sign for a local reservoir in our travels (& with few fish biting,) we decided to go look for it, but our long drive was fruitless. Investigating later, I saw that we'd been very close to where we finally turned around. During the ride, we stopped at another little pond off the road, where I saw Queen Anne's lace for the first time since leaving Canada. I saw this blue mud dauber (aka; steel-blue cricket hunter,) on one of the flowerheads.
Back behind our cabin, another lovely end to the day.
Although we'd booked more time, due to the oppressive heat that prevented us from leaving the cabin much during the day & the fact that the fish weren't biting much, we decided on waking the next day to pack it in & come home.
