Found this guy perched on my front door jamb coming home late last night.
He didn't move when I opened the door so I grabbed the camera 6T and tripod. He was still there !
F11 ISO 80 6 seconds lit by the tungsten porch light. Before I could try a flash shot he was gone.

It is a Crane fly, stomp on. They lay eggs in your lawn and the grubs eat the grass roots. I have seen an infestation bad enough to kill a lawn.
Nice shot of it though.

There are lots of different kinds of them and they are relatively common on this side of the lake. I will be glad to try and blow them your way if you want more.

Thanks for the offer Steve, I was glad it was there for the photo op, but hope that is my last encounter with one.
About the only thing I forsee blowing in from your direction is lake effect snow, and hopefully that will be a few months from now. :-)
