crane fly


I've been staring this guy down all morning.

Now that it's cooled outside, I thought for sure bug weather was over.

Even though crane flies don't prey on humans like mosquitoes do, they are just as creepy.  Their legs are too long for their bodies and they bob and wobble when they fly.  They stay in one spot for a suspicious amount of time, then disappear, then they show up again when you least expect it (usually in your hair when you're brushing your teeth).

My childhood cat used to eat them.
