Looks like a giant mosquito, but it's not. Has very look legs and a and one set of wings, Brownish in color. lots of detail up close.
Found in Connecticut, but can be found in several states in North America. It might like the pond or garden area. I found this one on my window sil.
They do not bite and they don't have a long proboscis(snout). Females have a needle-like stinger, but it is used to deposit eggs in moist soil.
