Look at what we found on the front porch today! At first we thought it was a spider eating a butterfly. Then maybe some kind of mutated wasp. Is it butterflyish? Mothish? Waspish? I'm going to have to google this.
It has a wasp-like abdomen/body and thick, black spidery legs (think tarantula):
It has very large, ugly, mottled grey-blue wings:
The pictures don't give a good sense of it's size, but I'd say it's about the size of a 65 watt lightbulb. It is the creepiest thing I've ever seen, and I've seen creepy. Is it a hybrid? A mutant? An important link in the evolutionary chain? Even the lizards are staying away.
