Your letter to the bugman:  This thing was in a swimming pool. Didn’t look to be struggling. I took it out and it sat on the side of the pool. I took some photos and a few minutes later I couldn’t find it. As you can see it has 4 legs, no wings, two large eyes and quite a long tail.

Water Scorpion

Dear Alex,
This is a predatory Water Scorpion, and the common name is a reference to its painful bite.  Water Scorpions are also capable of flying.
