This week we're taking a look at London's pond life. Perhaps the capital's most famous ponds are those in Hampstead Heath, where you can go for a dip. As you can see here though, half-naked humans are not the only thing you'll find in London's waterholes.

Thanks to the following photographers for use of their photos via the Londonist Flickr pool: Matt Brown, Luca Bardazzi, Stephanie Sadler, Laura Nolte, Stuart-Lee, helenoftheways, Andy Worthington, HoosierSands and VickieFlores.
