Hi there,
I know this is some kind of a mosquito, but I was shocked with the size of it… Can you tell me is it a rare specimen, or I can let it go =)

Crane Fly

Hi Uros,
Many people believe Crane Flies to be giant mosquitoes, but they are actually quite harmless.  In some circles, they are known as Mosquito Hawks because people are under the misconception that Crane Flies prey upon mosquitoes.  Most Crane Flies do not feed as adults, though it is believed that some species feed on nectar.
