    Thanks for that, I like to know.
    I corrected OH when he said they were Crane Flies (they are the huge ones aren't they?), but turns out I was wrong too :rolleyes:

    Crane flies are the dreaded daddy long legs that waft around your face unexpectedly of an evening

    Damselflies are the pretty ones - actual dragonflies are huge especially when they come whirring towards you :eek: Oh and crane flies are just horrible - spiders with wings :Nailbiting
