Found inside my lamp
Posted By: xs400, 04-13-2008, 11:18 PM

This guy was flying around my family room and decided to take up residence in one of my lamps. I found him a new home, however.
K100D, Pentax-F 35-70mm macro and +3 close focus filter.

Nice shot...

Ha ha... I just had one of those monsters buzzing me while I was looking at the computer. The minute I saw this pic, I knew this has to be from the bay area... The last week of warm weather has these guys out in force around here. I live a about 45 miles NE of SF and they are everywhere...

What part of the bay area are you in?

Tack sharp image and nice warm color. Did it's new home involve a burial?

Nasty looking creature - I agree with Diane once his portrait was done he deserved a burial haha - great capture.

Nice shot Frank. I noticed the crane flies are out in force early this year. Expect your lawn to start dieing next as their offspring start gnawing on the roots of your grass.....

Thanks for the comments everyone. It's much appreciated. A new home was found for him outside, I chased him out a window.

We've had quite a few of these guys show up in recent days. The hot weather reallBut this one was especially big and made a lot of noise inside the lamp of my family room.

I live on the San Francisco Peninsula in the town of Belmont.
