Scary black moth

I've been spotted this moth/fly several times now. It's been hanging around my garden and I'm not sure if it's friend or foe. Any help identifying this thing is greatly appreciated.

FYI: the pictures attached were taken on my damaged sunflower leaves. I'm not really sure if this moth is to blame or maybe my horrible infestation of leaf hoppers.

Thanks

Fly likely availing itself of the decomposing leaf matter.
