What's This Bug?!

Yesterday morning, this bug was on our front porch. I wonder what it is? It's huge!

I don't know if I would put my hand that close to it!

I'm not sure - a winged ant or termite? Check out this page:

It's the closest I could, so far.

That is one mean lookin' bug!

I coincidentally just saw this bug in a Pond Life book. It's a Dobson and can grow to 5 inches long.
