What insect is this! yikes!
okay, I'm totally new here, but this bugger (heh) was just to look to let go.
I have some pictures, but the description is also necessary.
BODY- Looks like the combination of a Dragonfly, Wasp, and Praying Mantis. He's got about six legs, wings like a wasp, and eyes just like a dragonfly. and a really long tail thing that can be extended to about 8-12 inches!!!
#$*@Y$!-I found him(her?) in my oak tree. that's right, IN! What 'it' does is fly onto a tree, and scout around until it finds a hole. (the hole is about 1/2 a cm or smaller, and looks like some sort of beetle drilled a nice hole in it). and then it squats over the hole, and it's stem (sorry I don't know that much about bugs, but it's the long part on the back.) the stem lifts up and the tip separates and forms what looks like one of those foldable Frisbees. then it slowly sticks it's antenna down into the hole, and appears to feed out of the tree. it does this for a long amount of time, and it pretty neat.
Here are the pics, sorry not that detailed -
