An Ode to the Crane Fly

In fact an ode to all insects. We know: no insects, no life on Earth. But in autumn time the crane fly (Dutch: langpootmug) is not too popular. They are everywhere and experienced as a little bit creepy, disturbing our order and neatness. Often they do not survive then. But sitting on the outside of our windows it is another story. Its design is a miracle: slender, sleak and streamlined. Precise also: the antennae have up to 39 segments. Advanced technology. © Q-Dock, all rights reserved.
