Dive bomb

I sit here, and am dive bombed by insects. Jenny spinners, or crane flies as some might call them.

I call them useless gangly legged creatures!

Maybe not completely useless - the spiderweb outside is full of them. But they don't look like they'd have much in the way of nourishment for a spider!

Our lawn has been full of them for days. They fly up, disturbed any time somebody walks through the grass. They perch on the outside wall of the house, everywhere we look. High, low - everywhere. And they find their way into the house...

Inevitably landing in the sink, where they breathe their last breath and eventually get washed down the drain.

Apparently, they eat mosquitoes. So the aren't completely useless.
