Took this shot of a fly on my screen porch. Interesting color on the eyes. My guess would be some type of Hoverfly but I’m not sure.

Dear S. Hunter,
Your fly is a Horse Fly, and the spacing between the eyes indicates it is a female.  Only female Horse Flies bite.  The closest match we could find on BugGuide is
Tabanus lineola.
