is this a crane fly ? it seems a little " fat " in the body

  • nope, but it looks like it could be a horntai, aslo known as giant wood wasp. the thing at the back is not a sting, its an egg laying tube called a ovipositor. large and a bit scary looking but quite harmless.

     

    but if i;m honest it is very difficult to tell for sure from the photo.

     

    google images of horntail and see if it matches your beastie.
