I found this nearly dead on the window sill in my garage. I’ve lived in Florida my entire life and never seen anything like this.

Dear Surprise me,
This is an Owlfly, and they really do seem to have characteristics from diverse orders of insects.  They are actually taxonomically grouped with Lacewings and Antlions in the order Neuroptera.
