The correct latin name for this crane fly is "Tipula simplex" but as mickbee humorously said the other day it could easily be mistaken as a name for a cheap taiwan copy of a watch. LOL
Will be offshore for 2 weeks starting tomorrow so will probably be my last upload for a while unless internet access is available on the rig I am visiting. See you all soon.
Hope you like the shot and thnks for looking.
