Crane Fly (Daddy Long Legs)

By Paul_Iddon  
This is quite impressive. They faces of these insects are amazing and pretty ugly really.

The Daddy Long Leg (common name) landed on the door to the kitchen, quite high up, which meant angling the camera considerably to get the shot, but by using extension tubes allowed a closer view (I think I had them on anyway...)

C&C as always.
