Insects. #3

Hi everyone!

I forgot to do my insect post earlier, so, here it is now. Hopefully you do not mind looking at insects up close. This one is the “Giant Eastern Crane Fly”. And they really are big, with a wingspan of over 2 inches (5cm) and a leg span of over 3 inches (8cm). They are a member of the ‘True Flies’ category of insects and fortunately they do not bite. They looks somewhat like giant mosquitoes and many people refer to them as such. They only live a few days and generally do not eat during that time. Often found in moist places and readily attracted to artificial light. They are quite common in spring and summer. Have a great day everyone and God bless!
