Hi Lynne,
This is a Giant Western Crane Fly, Holorusia rubiginosa. It is harmless. This is the biggest fly west of the Rockies.

  1. Hi there, i read your blog occasionally and i own a similar one and i was just curious if you get a lot of spam remarks?

    If so how do you prevent it, any plugin or anything you can recommend?
    I get so much lately it’s driving me mad so any support is very much appreciated.
