Your letter to the bugman :  This bug was on my car today and I found it sooo neat! I’ve never seen something like this before! It body from head to tail? Butt? Ending? Was about at inch at most. I didn’t get to see it fly but it almost looks like it has a second smaller set of wings under the large ones.
