What kind of species (looks like a giant black fly) is about an inch long?
This is the second time I’ve seen a black fly in my yard. I first thought it must be some moth like insect but it landed near me and was gigantic. The whole body structure looks like a black fly. It was about an inch long and half an inch wide. It is not a horse fly or deer fly. Body and wings are pitch black.
