The Illusive Crane Fly - Long Legged Arthropod


Last month I followed this very large Crane Fly around the yard in hopes that it might finally rest for a photo. It did but only briefly as it was very camera shy. Next year I'll try for a better picture of these graceful creatures, floating effortlessly as they make their ghostly travels. (click on image to supersize)

I tracked one of these guys down a couple of weeks ago as well. :)
