I’m assuming this is a robber fly, but wondering for sure.

Was this a small fly? We believe we have correctly identified it as the Robber Fly Cerotainia albipilosa based on this and other BugGuide images and its size is listed as less than five millimeters.
Thanks for the quick response!
I post quite a few of my photos on Facebook and would like to ID the various bugs and plants that I find myself photographing, more and more.
Five millimeters is about right. I was thinking a little less than ¼” long, including wings.
