It isin the middle of the winter here and is unusual to find any kind of insects. I found this long leggedinsecton the window. It is not the best back round for photographybut under the circumstances it'll do.

Nice insect captures.Boy, he must be cold, he looks rather lifeless, about the way I think I would be outside looking in.

Nice shots and very interesting to see close-up. I wonder what those two little prongs are on its back. I am not sure what to call them.

Donna, Jerry, thanks for looking and commenting.

Beth Ellen, thanks for viewing and commenting. If I have to guess what those prongsare, I would say that they are counter balance for navigation purposes, like a helicopter.

Great shots of that Crane Fly. I have taken some shots of them and they always die shortly after the picture is taken. We are constantly fighting the damage they do to lawns.
