I think its a type of horse fly.
I believe its a type of horse fly it was on my SUV, it was about a inch and a 1/2 long. I’ve never seen a fly this big! You have all the permissions to use the pictures I’ve taken. I sent you a HUGE macro shot, you can resize it if you would like. but I like the details!!!!!!!!
Best Regards,

Hi Mindy,
Definitely a Horse Fly in the genus Tabanus, but it will take us additional time to identify the species. Eric’s response is: “The only thing I can say is that it is a female of either Tabanus or Hybomitra. I am so not an authority on tabanids!”
