I have seen a few of these guys this summer. It has long antenna with small bulbs (?) on the end. It is fuzzy like a moth, but has 2 sets of clear wings like a dragonfly. I have seen it in the month of August only so far. What in the world is it?

Owlfly

Hi Keisha,
This unusual insect is an Owlfly, one of the Neuropterans in the same insect order as the Lacewings, Antlions and Mantisflies.

Thank you so very much for the rapid response. I spent hours on google and got nowhere.. Thanks again.
