Orange Cranefly

From early last summer: a limoniid cranefly, Limonia phragmitidis (Diptera: Limoniidae), recognisable by the orange body and the 3 dark spots on the leading edges of the wings. Here is a photo of another specimen that I took a couple of weeks earlier.

Photo taken in Whiteknights Park, Reading University grounds, Reading, UK, on 2009-06-04.
