Dark Giant Horsefly

We found one of these dead in the porch this morning and couldn’t identify it. I was really surprised to find it’s a type of horsefly. I always thought of horseflies as mainly dark without much colouring. I was glad not to have to deal with a live one in the porch, just the size of it is intimidating!
