Hello. I was camping this past weekend on the Potomac River; near Harpers Ferry WV and found the attached bug.
It was about 5″ long; overall length including the front antenna’s. The attached pictures show both top and bottom view.
Some of the guys at work believe it may be a Dobsonfly??? Can you confirm?
Thanks for the info….

Dear Bob,
This is indeed a male Dobsonfly, and he is magnificent.
