I found an interesting bug in my dogs water bowl and i had no idea what it was until i found it on your site. I wanted to share the photo of the Giant Eastern Crane Fly! This is the first time I’ve ever come across one of these beauties, and let me just say, I’m very glad to know it’s harmless!

Dear Jessicarenae,
You are correct that this is a Giant Eastern Crane Fly,
Pedicia albivitta, and the stark white background in your image nicely illustrates the lovely markings on the wings of this species.
