Hello members
10 day's holliday in south of France was a good pretex to take with me my camera.
I went for a walk looking for with a big attention some insect living in the grass level.
surprised i was when i saw this this strange but pretty specie of flying insect.
It look like a mix of mosquito for his for legs tight and long and wasp for the color of his body.
It is waiting on a clover.
I find more info in order to complete my note

interesting insect. nice colors good DOF but the insect needs some sharpening.

i took a photo of one of these today think it is a spotted cranefly nephrotoma appendiculata. beware of its grubs they are known as leather jackets and will damage the roots of garden crops.

Bonjour Bruno,
Voilà un insecte que j'avais aussi photographié l'année dernière. C'est en effet une Tipula, comme l'écrit snaphappy. Bien photographié, il est toujours intéressant de découvrir des espèces peu vues sur TN.
Bonne soirée
