This long-legged gnat, and about 7 to 8 mm, was walking on one of the timber rails that make the wetland trails. Without fly before my eyes traveled over a foot.
As on other occasions, I have no idea identification.

Taken in Suarez Pond wetland in Motril, Granada, Spain.
Anyone know what insect is?
Thanks for your help and greetings.
