it's a crane fly AKA mosquito eater of the Tipulidae family. This one is an adult female. They are weak fliers. She may have already or will soon lay her eggs in the turf. The larvae or grubs as they are more commonly known are fast destroyers of a nice lawn and great fishing bait. This insect gets quite large but does not bite. And even tho they ...
