Found this little fly preening itself in the car, next to an open window. Guessing it’s, maybe, a picture winged fly? Thank you very much.

Dear Susurra,
You are correct that this is a Picture Winged Fly, and as you can see by the matching image on BugGuide, it is
Delphinia picta.  Your image is quite stunning.
