Not only is it a weird word, but it is a weird bug that has four large, many-veined wings. Get a load of this creepy-crawly.
I have never heard of one or seen one before. Elegant in shape, but I wouldn’t want one to land on me! If you want to read more about them, the folks over at Real Monstrosities have done an article. http://www.realmonstrosities.com/2011/01/dobsonfly.html
Fortunately, they only measure a few inches long and not a few feet. Visions of Mothman come to mind.
My first thought when I saw the word was a former co-worker named Dobson. “Fly Dobson, Fly!” Like “Run, Forest, Run!” And he would have to flee from a bug with prongs like those.
Anyone seen a live one?
