Slightly scary bug with unnecessarily long legs / Немного пугающая муха с необоснованно длинными ногами

I found this strange critter on a birch in the peat bog the other day:

Olympus Stylus 1s, 42mm, ISO800, f5.6, 1/100s

Not very scary, but not one you would want in your bedroom at night, and not as scary as this one I posted earlier:

Olympus XZ-1, 112mm, ISO100, f5.6, 1/200s

They are both just varieties of crane flies (караморы, Tipulidae) though, and both are harmless.
