Unidentified Insect - Tritoxa incurva

Unidentified Insect - Tritoxa incurva
Dundalk, Baltimore County, Maryland, USA
July 12, 2015
Size: 1/2"
This was a hard shot to get, and it's heavily cropped. It appears to be a fly but I can't find it on Maryland Biodiversity Project or elsewhere on the web. I have other angles if anyone needs them. This was taken July 12, 2015 at the new North Point Battlefield Park in Dundalk. It was on some tall grass growing at the edge of the wetland area that has a boardwalk going through it. I did not see it in flight, but the next thing I noticed after the odd shape of its face was the grace and fluidity of its movement. It rotated its wings and walked in a smooth mechanical way, went down the stalk of grass and out of site.
