Well... this time I have tried to do my homework right and I think that this is a Tiger Crane Fly (Nephratoma) from the Tipulidae family.
I've found this bug in my orange tree.

Hangin' on by the toes of its front legs?

What an interesting bug! Never seen one like it! As I do not have an orangetree I will likely never seen a live one eh!

Interesting presentation! Tfs, J.

Dear Aida,
very, very good macro of this Tipulid fly. Don't worry about the cut off legs, they are so long it's bad for the picture! Thanks for presenting it.
You must be right about Nephrotoma. In our region we have Nephrotoma terminalis, which looks like yours.
My best regards,

Hi Aida, wonderful macro with great colors, splendid details and elegant presentation, very well done
Ciao Silvio
