When you are eating outside in the Spring, you can never be sure what might come by for a visit. So far this Spring we have had the usual assortment of bees and flies find their way past the mosquito netting, and we’ve had to rescue a Chipping Sparrow that got in through an open flap and then couldn’t find its way out. To end the month of May, this mating pair of Craneflies dropped by for a visit. They cause us no harm so, once I had taken a few shots while I was balancing precariously on a couple of webbed lawn chairs, I caught the two of them and showed them their way to freedom.
Tech: The pattern in the background is a fine mesh mosquito netting and I was standing on two webbed lawn chairs to get sufficient height for the shot with my Nikon D300 and 105mmVR macro lens.
