6409. I have lived in Ontario, all my life, and have never seen this type of Insect creature before! It was approximately 2.5 -3 inches in length, and about 1 inch in girth. Could you please Identify? I was in Peterborough last week(18-21 June 2019) and it was around my friends pool during the day. It was able to fly but only a short distance (20 ft or so each time we approached and nudged it away from our dogs. It did not make any sounds). Please get back to me with your prognosis at your convenience! Thanking you in advance. Central Eastern Ontario, Trenton, Ontario. Canada
