Don't Be Such A Bug

As I had mentioned earlier this week, Monday was a very slow day at the shop.

I was happy to have had the company of at least one determined and very
inquisitive creature who wasn't a 'bug' after all.

This insect does have a is a Crane Fly.
Here is more information about this Mosquito-looking insect:

Crane Flies (Tipulidae) are delicate insects varying in size from 1/4 inch to as large as 1 1/2 inches in length. The largest crane flies are sometimes called "daddy-long-legs", "gully nippers", or "mosquito hawks". They do not bite people and they do not eat mosquitoes. Some species of crane flies emerge from aquatic sources and others from terrestrial or decaying vegetation sources.
