Bug with fork head

I live in Southwest Florida. I found this bug on my porch, but I can’t seem to find anything on the internet about it. It is long like a dragonfly with clear wings and its head looks like it has a dinner fork attached to it. I’m just curious what it is.

Hi Gaston,
This sure looks like the silhouette of an Antlion to us.

    I first saw one of these guys underneath a small carousel outside of a walmart, his wings were opaque though, and it took me a good minute to tell myself that it wasn’t something alien. I just couldn’t imagine how I’d gone through 20 years of life without noticing something that big.
