It’s huge, at least 4.5 inches long, it looks like a dragonfly mixed with a wasp with a fluffy mane, it’s obviously carnivorous because it was just chilling on my porch eating up a wasp.
This is one of the Giant Robber Flies in the genus Promachus, and we suspect it might be a Red Footed Cannibalfly. We also believe your size estimate is an exaggeration.
