I think I’ve identified this bug myself and a female Dobsonfly (thanks to your wonderful site), but this was such a good picture that my husband took on the loading dock at his work last week, thought I’d share.
This really is a fabulous photo of a female Dobsonfly in a threat posture. Though she looks fierce, she is quite harmless since she lacks venom, though she may give a nip if she is carelessly handled. We are honored to post your photo, however, we are postdating your submission so that our site will get daily refreshed during our brief holiday away from the office for the coming week.
