What in the World is This?

My wife has  a pretty extensive bug collection, however I have never seen this bug I saw today.

I went outside and this weird looking bug that looked like a huge mosquito was flying around me and it finally landed.  I grabbed my camera and got the following pictures.

Upon closer review of this bug… it had two white front feet or arms or what ever you want to call them but it was rubbing them together.

It just sat there for awhile and didn’t seem to be bothered by me putting the camera in front of it’s face.  A typical fly would have flown away as I got within about 3 inches from it.

So does anyone know what this buggah is?

  1. Another place you could try if Doug’s suggestion doesn’t work out is http://www.whatsthatbug.com/

  2. Something I admire about Damon is his appreciation of the natural world about him. This is a trait, we humans seem to lose sight of at time… in other words, that we are part of a web of nature. Now I learn in this blog of yours that your wife is also part of this venture, or I should say, this adventure: being observant of the little creatures that share our life space. Thanks for the great photos. MW

  3. I have a good friend involved with this site, and I reckon she or one of her colleagues will be able to quickly answer your question. Good luck!
