Not fishing

I know this isn’t a fishing status but I thought it was a worthy post anyway. I have lived in Canada my entire life, grew up in the city of Toronto, spent countless hours in the wilderness, and although I have seen many weird animals and insects I have never come across something quite like this before. I do live in the country,  but I did not have to venture far out of my home to make the acquaintance of this very interesting insect,
The Dobsonfly.  This is a male Dobsonfly.  Apparently it is native to Ontario, and it uses its large pincers to hold onto it’s partner during mating season. I took a few photos and a very short video.  I hope you enjoy and do not have nightmares from it ha ha ha.
