Heard and saw this on my back porch last night about 3 am. Thought it was a beetle before it landed. I thought it might be a horsey of some kind but ill let you be the judge of that.

Dear Ed,
Each year in June, we get several images of Golden Backed Snipe Flies, and most come from Ohio and Pennsylvania, across the border from you.
