An owlfly (Ascalaphidae) at my porchlight.
Owlfly on passion vine June 27, 2012
Caught at dawn with mist net set for bats.
Note the eyes that are differentiated into 2 parts, which is characteristic for owl flies.
Owlflies are dragonfly-like insects with large bulging eyes and long 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.
