Crane Fly – Ctenophora pectinicornis

This insect caught my eye immediately yesterday when I was wandering round the little meadow by the burn.  At first I thought it was an Ichneuman Wasp but it turned out to be a much less common Crane Fly, Ctenophora pectinicornis.  One of my best finds yet, and also learnt how to differentiate between Crane Flies and Ichneumans.
