Schwarzsee

We walked from Kitzbuehel in a north-westerly direction to Schwarzsee (Black Lake). The lake takes its name from the dark green mud water and is 0.48 km² and the maximum depth is 54 m. It is popular for bathing not only because of its warm water temperature but it is also very idyllic and lies within the landscape of the Wilder Kaiser Mountain Range, literally ‘Wild Emperor’.

We were hoping to find some interesting insects and were rewarded as the rain arrived and the cooler temperature slowed down the metabolism of the dragon flies. Sheltering under umbrellas we captured a dragon fly too cold and wet to fly!













temperature dropped and a dragonfly cooled and was too wet to fly until it had warmed up.
