Well-Nigh Wordless Wednesday: Enormous

You know an insect is BIG when you can get it to fill most of the frame of an iPhone shot without any sort of macro lens attachments.  Check this crane fly out!

That’s enormous for a crane fly.  I think they’re fun, but I know a lot of people are terrified of them.  I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: these flies can’t hurt you!  Most of them can’t even eat as adults, so they got nuthin’ to bite you with.  Nuthin’!  You’re totally safe around these guys, no matter how big and leggy they are.
