Elizabeth and I went over to Mosque Point Park next to Lake Worth -- really awesome spot. We'll have to go back when there's some more light in the day!

Description from Wikipedia

Owlflies are dragonfly-like insects with large bulging eyes and strongly knobbed antennae. They are neuropterans in the family Ascalaphidae; they are only distantly related to the true flies, and even more distant from the dragonflies and damselflies. They are diurnal or crepuscular predators of other flying insects, and are typically 5 cm (2.0 in) long.
