Another fly!

This was the desktop background of my lab computer for well over year, so folks have probably seen it.  It looked much better on my 19” LCD screen than it did on that computer, so I’d figure I’d post it. 

It turns out though, that’s it’s another fly, which I always assumed was a Tipulidae.  I’m not sure if they have painted wings though, and it’s much more fun to post it here than look it up on Wikipedia.
