Crane Flies (mating pair)

A mating pair of Crane Flies (Infraorder Tipulomorpha) spotted at Huntley Meadows Park, Fairfax County, Virginia USA.

A mating pair of Crane Flies (Infraorder Tipulomorpha) was spotted on 30 March 2016 during a photowalk at Huntley Meadows Park. This couple was the consolation prize — my reward at the end of a long, fruitless day hunting for odonates.

    I hope your upcoming hunting days will be much more fruitful, Walter. Crane flies are cool, but not as much as dragonflies.

      Remember when we co-discovered a Springtime Darner last year? I vividly remember the way Crane Flies faked us out all day long. Same thing happened here. I saw the pair in flight and thought I might have spotted a teneral dragonfly…um, not so much — faked out again!
