Well-Nigh Wordless Wednesday: Lake Waccamaw

The day I got to see all the carnivorous plants in North Carolina’s Green Swamp, I also got to go to Lake Waccamaw.  It’s a great place!  It’s a bay lake (that means it’s surrounded by bay plants) and it’s incredibly shallow, 11 feet at the deepest point.  Still, it’s huge by Arizona’s standards, and it was a glorious place to swim, seine for native fishes, and survey the native freshwater mussels after a hot trip through the swamp:

I especially liked it because there were tons of dragonflies flying along the shores, zipping along through all that vegetation.  Bet you didn’t see that coming, did you?  :)
