Black Crane Fly - Tipula abdominalis

Black Crane Fly - Tipula abdominalis
Barton, Orleans County, Vermont, USA
July 22, 2011
Size: very large
This one seemed exceptionally big to me. Beautiful pattern on the wings. I never saw it fly. It was resting in the shade on a very hot day. I went inside to change lenses and came back out and it was gone.
