Your letter to the bugman: an odd bug in the mud! probably about 3 inches long! it was very dark out, sorry the picture isn’t great. thank you for your help!
How you want your letter signed: curious, again
Dear curious, again,
This is a female Dobsonfly. She is not dangerous, but stay away from those mandibles. She is prepared to defend herself and she may deliver a painful nip if you don’t handle with respect.
Thank you, Daniel! What a neat bug. I love her wings. J
