Photo Description
I came out to my car to find this on my windshield! It was huge...about 4 inches long including it's antennae. I have never seen anything like it before! It eventually flew off, but luckily I got to take a photo of it before it left. Does anyone know what kind of insect it is?

Photo Location
Silverdale, WA

Looks like a California Laurel Borer. They do live in WA.
