Female Dobsonfly

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
Sharing one more pic below. Thanks again and take care!
