What a Face!!
 
A Crane Fly - I think this is where horror and science fiction writers get their ideas.

Those things are everywhere...my wife thought they were Mosquitoes...lol...thank the Good Lord they aren't!

Great shots Clint excellent details and these guys are hard to shoot for sure!

You're right - I'm glad they don't bite! They are sometimes called mosquito hawks but they don't eat mosquitoes. I think at the "adult" stage all they do is eat, mate and die. The grubs or larva are bad for lawns.

They aren't that hard to shot when they are dead and their feet are glued to an ivy leaf.

It's body is about 1 inch long but if you measure from from feet to the back feet it's close to 3 inches.

Here's a better "overall" shot.
