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!

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.
