Three crackers here Carol, I've never seen a crane fly in close up before.

Weather is just the opposite over here, been a beautiful, warm and sunny week with little wind and temperatures in the high 60's.

I rather think that if I were a cranefly in a bitingly cold gale force northerly wind, I'd be hanging on to whatever I could find too! Great shot Smile

An outstanding photo! The hind wing "solid state" gyroscope protrusion is very visible on the R/H side of the body. (It is on the L/H side as well, but is hidden behind the wing. These help to stabilise it in flight, or so the cognoscenti surmise. Regards Martin. v3 is my favourite!
