Dear Bugman,
This guy (girl?) flew into my car as I was on my way out tonight. Needless to say, I was a bit late getting going by the time I got it out of the car and got pictures. It’s about two inches long. It’s not a very coordinated flyer. I live in Phoenix, AZ. This was mid-September, and about 9pm. What’s that bug???
