    1. Thanks! I thought it was a dobsonfly at first, until I noticed the antennae. Posted one month ago
  2. That's one gorgeous insect, whoa! Posted one month ago
    1. Yes! I with they didn't always insist on landing on my deck chairs though...It's hard to get a clear shot of them when they are camouflaged. And, this is one insect that I don't like to touch. These (and dobsonflies) have a really creepy, tissue paper feel and they smell gross. Posted one month ago
