Hi! We love just North of Chattanooga, TN and saw this but on our deck this morning. I posted the picture on Facebook but no one seems to know what it is, let alone ever seen one before! Just curious as to what it might be! Big black eyes, hair, pointed nose and two toes on each leg! Help!!

Dear Kathy,
We love posting images of Red Footed Cannibalflies each summer.  These are large, impressive predators that take down large prey, including stinging insects, while flying.

Thank you so very much Daniel! I appreciate you responding! Have a wonderful evening!
