giant water bug
I thought you might want a couple pictures of another Giant Water Bug. It was flying around my friends back porch. He has a very wet conservation area behind his house. We were able to identify it on your site. Luckily (as we now see) nobody got bitten. Thanks for the great info.
We always love getting great new photos of Toe-Biters. Giant Water Bugs, House Centipedes, Hummingbird Moths, Potato Bugs and Dobsonflies always attract attention and the curious must know what they are. That is why we are here.
