Sailing along in the north end of Frenchmans Bay (Bar Harbor) in Maine last week, we met this beautiful flying insect. I see that others have already identified it as a phantom crane fly, but I thought the photo I got of it would be of some use and enjoyment. It landed on our wire rigging and stayed for about an hour. The large thorax looks like a backpack. Note the thin, feathery antennae.

Hi Dave,
The Phantom Crane Fly is surely an ethereal creature.  Thanks for sending us your images.
