I took a visit to the pond and heathland during the hot spell in July ( well it’s been going all summer really..) and the pond there was as dry as I have seen it. So dry in fact that you could walk across the middle of it.
Here are some pictures I took of the now small pond.
However there was still a lot of wildlife in the dryness. Small froglets even in the dried mud.
And dragonflies flying and landing over and around the pond.
Whilst on the heath – several skippers were flitting about – I managed this close up of one.
All these images above are more closeups than true macro’s as I was shooting on a 100-400mm lens. Which I also used in this short video.
