I am in full agreement MJ. I think this is an owl fly. Thanks!
Also, I did some checking and there are some species of dragonfly that have antenna. There are also some species here in Costa Rica that are white. However, I haven't found a link for the combination of the two. I will look into the owl fly species for this area. Thanks!
