Your letter to the bugman:  Hi!
This interesting creature was like looking through a microscope, only… I wasn’t.  This is a standard sized brick it is sitting on. Seen mid July on a very rainy day. There were several on the wall of the building. My guess after a bit of research would be Dobson fly?  Thank you!

Female Dobsonfly

Hi Jamie,
You are correct that this is a female Dobsonfly.  We posted numerous images yesterday of both Dobsonflies and related Fishflies, a clear indication the hottest days of summer have arrived.

Location: Piseco Lake, New York
