Found this pair this morning in the shade. I assume a male and female. Any ideas?

Crane Fly

Dear Ann,
These are harmless Crane Flies, and we cannot say for certain if they are the same species or if they are opposite sexes.  We can tell you that Crane Flies are currently quite plentiful in our own Mount Washington, Los Angeles garden.  Many species of larval Crane Flies feed on roots of grasses.
