I took my camera to the Grapevine Botanical gardens. I usually take some photographs of the flowers and sometime insects I find around the gardens. On this trip I was taking photographs of red tulips. I found this Crane fly on one of the red tulips. I quickly switched to my macro lens and got a few shots. Cranefly are quite common in Texas. Crane flies are often called mosquito hawks or mosquito eaters but they do not feed on mosquitos.
