Found this little friend Just north of Audubon Park in new Orleans Louisiana…
I think it’s an Owlfly, and thought the wild eyes were simply too cool not to share.
Thank you for what you do.

Hi John,
The eyes of this Owlfly really are amazing.  The eyes appear to be grooved, so based on information posted to BugGuide, we suspect this is a Four Spotted Owlfly.
