Hi bug man,
My eight-year-old daughter and I were hoping to get this rather large insect identified. She found him hanging out on the outside porch railing at Lincoln’s House in Springfield, IL. It was never bothered by our presence or me being very close to take this picture. Can you identify it? Thanks so much.
