Crane Fly Specimens

All these images show live flies before they were chilled to death and preserved as specimens.  Click the thumbnail for a larger image and then click the resulting image again for a version that is probably larger still and has no frame.  If your web browser automatically resizes large images to make them smaller, then you may have to click this image also to see it at full size.  The Lat/Long coordinates are linked to KMZ files that will open in Google Earth; provided, of course, that the Google Earth software is running on your computer. A single KML File with all the coordinates is also available here.

Date & Time: 2008-08-29 11:16 NDT
