Introducing: The Cranefly

I found this fellow perched on the outside of my sliding glass door this

morning. I thought it was a male mosquito since they are much larger than their female counterparts (the ones that bite us). However, a search in Bug Finder revealed it to be the cranefly. You can read more about it on Insect Identification.

You gotta love those googly eyes!


  1. What a cute, little guy! I hope you’re saying that unlike mosquitoes, he/she does NOT bit or otherwise cause harm and we can live and let live…
