This thread was prompted by Philippe Moniotte's photos in:
http://www.dipter...ad_id=8938

and there are further examples at:
http://www.dipter...post_40524
http://www.dipter...post_29262

and no doubt others.

The photos below show a male Tipula paludosa that had the misfortune to land in my pond (Buckinghamshire, UK), where it was promptly devoured by a gang of pond skaters Gerris gibbifer.

Not a nice way to goSad

(Hope I don't offend any dipterophiles with this rather tragic thread ...)
