A BIG fly, maybe 3/4 inch wide. Seen sitting on lamppost just inside entrance to Potter Park Zoo, Lansing, MI.

Checked Bugguide.net and the wing, abdominal and thoracic patterns look to fit Xenox tigrinus.

Seen these for years landing and siting on the garage. Always thought they were sunning themselves, but perhaps there was more to it. This garage has always been infested with carpenter bees as well.
