Dragonfly

Dragonflies are abound with great variety in Kiskunság National Park due to the wide range of different habitats from alkaline lakes through freshwater lakes, the neighbouring 2 largest rivers of Hungary, River Danube and River Tisza, oxbow lakes, channels, dykes and ponds. We have plenty of species each year even in our garden at our large pond.

The following is an incomplete list of the most frequently seen Dragonflies in our garden and at the nearby areas:

Southern Emerald Damselfly Lestes barbarus - sometimes good numbers of these wonderful damselflies are recorded around the woodland edge of the meadow at Lake Kondor

Willow Emerald Damselfly Lestes viridis sometimes in the garden of Ecotours Kondor EcoLodge and around the woodland edge of the meadow at Lake Kondor

Blue-tailed Damselfly Ischnura elegans commonest of the damselflies often in large numbers around the water-edge

Emperor Dragonfly Anax imperator frequent around water bodies, including the Garden Pond at the EcoLodge
