Dear Cathy,
This is a Crane Fly, and it is perfectly harmless. In an attempt to identify the species, we found this FlickR image from Portugal identified as
 Nephrotoma crocata luteata, and it looks very similar to your image, though your image is quite blurry.  This image of Nephrotoma quadrifaria from France on Superstock looks even closer. We also located this image of Nephrotoma crocata from France on iGoTerra.

Wow, that’s it! Thank you so much! 😀
