Comments(6) # Daddy Long Legs london e17

A query for you. I think most folk like butterflies; perhaps not quite so many are as fond of the Dragons as I am but there are societies looking after their interests so it's clearly not just me; spiders again have fewer admirers but they are out there along with those of ladybirds and other beetles. But I've never met anyone who professes even an interest, let alone a liking, for Daddy Long Legs or Craneflies. OK so they're not the most beautiful of creatures but surely their ungainly flying and liability to fly straight into everything that might be in their way should bring out our sympathy and our British love of the underdog. Yet somehow this isn't the case...even I can't really raise much enthusiasm for the species. Poor old Daddy Long Legs. Canon EOS 5D
