Saw these two bugs on my back deck in Coopersburg, Pa. They are about 1 1?2 inches long. Would love to know what they are.
These are mating Giant Robber Flies or Bee Killers in the genus Promachus, a group that includes the Red Footed Cannibalfly. We turned to BugGuide to see if we could find a species match for you, and we were surprised to find your image which was submitted to them last week.
