Giant Water Bug

Mystery Bug in Northern Vermont
This bug appeared on the porch screen of our cottage in Westmore, Vermont (Bald Hill Pond area) elevation ~1900 ft in July, 2003 any ideas what it is? It also has wings since it flew.

Hi Allen
You have a Giant Water Bug or Electric Light Bug, also known as a Toe-Biter. They rightly earned all of their common names, and they can deliver a nasty bite.
