Owlfly!
Nice, was this your first owlfly? I hope you get an ID; that is apparently a tricky group.

 
Thanks Tim!
Yes indeed this was a first for us. Very interesting creatures.

I have only come across one once so far. I hope to come across them again (and hope you too). I was surprised (maybe I shouldn't be) how poorly they are known to amateurs. I certainly had never heard of them.
