This individual measured 12 mm. I'm wondering if it could be Stratiomyidae sp. It was photographed on our rural property on a very hot summer's morning.

I was fortunate enough to photograph from this angle, too, which may aid identification.

Ectinorhynchus (Therevidae)
While others can't climb, using infinite pains,
I, gravity turning to jest,
Ascend, with all ease, perpendicular planes,
Rough or smooth, just as pleases me best.
