Taken at Hollow Pond Leyton Flats, I went to this pond because marsh frogs have been spotted here recently, I didn't see any but I was amazed to see a muntjac deer cross a busy road in the east end of London.

      WOW Mossy, you have been looking about. Great finds with fantastic shots. I've never seen dragonflies coming out of the pond like #3 and #13, well spotted.
