Description

A crane fly landed on a tree right in front of me as I was waking through the North Beach Natural Area. He has 6 legs, 2 wings and a brown and tan striped abdomen. This is an adult crane fly since it is very slender, and long-legged.

Pretty sure this is a crane fly (family Tipulidae) but I don't know them well enough to get beyond that.
