Shedding Skin

I saw this one the other night while I was on spider patrol. I say one because I *think* it was one insect molting.

Folks at identified it as a Crane fly.

I wish I'd stayed to see the remainder of the process, but I was running around looking at things and only watched for a little while.

I aspire to be the sort of person who watches insects molting and spiders weaving and admires the process. I also want to be the sort of person who is efficient and gets things done.

The two desires do not always harmonize.

Edit: More info on Apparently, this really was two creatures mating. See pic and the answers here.
