Ctenophora flaveolata - Cowleaze Wood

Observation - Ctenophora flaveolata - Cowleaze Wood. Description: Over the years quite a few people have sent me photos of this rare cranefly for identification, but I'd never seen it myself - until today! Very excited to find this one flying down a woodland ride. I followed it for a while until it paused to investigate

Over the years quite a few people have sent me photos of this rare cranefly for identification, but I'd never seen it myself - until today! Very excited to find this one flying down a woodland ride. I followed it for a while until it paused to investigate the leaf-litter, for just long enough to take some photos.
