Even on a miserable day...

Awoke to a dismal, wet morning. A small cranefly drifted in at the back door as I opened up. Its size, together with speckled wings, made me suspect that it was Limonia nubeculosa; this was confirmed when, under the microscope, three black rings were revealed on the back legs. It is a common insect but - let's be honest - only of interest if you are a real anorak with regards to flies.
