There’s A Weird Bug In My Yard!

I recently discovered a really strange bug in my front yard. He/She/(It?) has 4 sets of wings and mandibles (like mouth pincers) and its roughly 3.5 inches long. I found it stuck to the side of my house underneath the porch lights.

Any idea what it might be? Check out my photos and video…

    Hey Martin,

    It’s a Dobsonfly, I had to look it up when the girls and I sighted one.
