From Heaven?

Having a little trouble getting traction on my blog for August.  Here's today's weird photo and story.  I was walking down the sidewalk by my house when a lightweight something or other bounced off my head and landed on the cement.  It looked like a live Cranefly, and I didn't have my camera.  I figured if I attempted to catch it, I'd never see it again.  I bent over and picked it up.  It was dead!  It actually landed in an upright position as in the above photo, but rigor mortis had set in and it was clearly dead.  I brought it in the house for a photo session.  Maybe I should the read magazine article beneath the insect.  It might help me get my thinking back on track for another month of natural history blogging.
