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.

It's not a moth.

Fly likely availing itself of the decomposing leaf matter.
