Common Name: Dobsonfly
Size: 100-150mm (wingspan)
Location: Sitapaila, Kathmandu, Nepal


Hadn't seen these kind of insect ever until it came flying and landing on a rope when I was out taking macro of the bugs. After scouring the net on what kind of insects it was, I finally found that it was a Dobsonfly. The larvae of these flies live in the streams and once adult they live for a week only.
