My boyfriend is an electrician, and sent me this picture of a strange looking bug he came across in this early summer season. I tried looking it up to see what it may be, but I haven’t been able to get an exact match. I’d really appreciate any input you can provide. Thanks!

Hi Tiffany,
This is a very distinctive species of Crane Fly,
Ctenophora dorsalis, and the presence of an ovipositor indicates she is a female.
