A slightly ‘deeper’ and more resolved sketch of the pond up on the moorland at Carn Kenidjack. Hoards of brilliantly coloured dragonflies hunted and chased each other in the breeze, flitting over the water surface in a wild acrobatic dance. The sound of wings rustling and whirring as they collided with each other in mid-flight broken by the wind and the distant call of a cuckoo.
