This insect was on my screen door. He never left the whole day. We actually thought it was dead but it left later in the day. On the underside his body was long and thin. Can you identify?

Dear Me Ma,
This is neither a moth nor a bee.  It is a female Spring Fishfly.

Thanks for your response. It’s the first one we’ve seen in our area.  It’s actually still on our screen door.
