Female of Tipula sp. Possibly Tipula (Tipula) paludosa. Observed 03-17-12

It's been a very very long time since I've last seen these. The last one I saw was last year in my bathroom and it was small with orange and black stripes on it's abdomen.

All the others I've seen (that I know know are Tipula spp. due to research) were either on my terrace or lobby windows or upstate at all the camps I went to for the summer.

So it was pleasant surprise to have seen this one buzzing about the various Narcissus invading the grasses.
