Tiger crane fly























This colourful crane fly, with black and yellow markings, turned up in our garden yesterday.

My thanks to Graham Watkeys of Methyr Tydfil for identifying it as a tiger crane fly Nephrostoma flavipalpis, after I posted a photograph on the wonderful iSpot web site.
