The description in the (OSM) wiki states: "A pond: a body of standing
> water, man-made in most cases, that is usually smaller than a lake."
This definition is different from the Wikipedia definition:
" A *pond* is a body <https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Body_of_water> of standing
water <https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Water_stagnation>, either natural or
artificial, that is usually smaller than a lake
<https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lake> "

What are your thoughts?

Our wiki is misleading
The "thing" in the Mapillary photo is a lake, not a pond, regardless of
what the OSM wiki says.
It's too large for a pond
