Found this guy in our yard. Pretty sure it's a Black Soldier Fly.

Request to Use Photo of Hermetia Illucens for Species Webpage
I am Jonathan Tan, a final year student from the National University of Singapore. I would like to put up and accredit a photo of Hermetia illucens on a Species Webpage for Black Soldier Flies that I have created. The webpage is part of a university module and will be used solely for educational purposes. Your photo would greatly aid in enhancing learning and educational value of the webpage. Would it be possible for me to use your photo with proper accreditation?

Yes, go right ahead and use the photo! I would be honored. :)
