Entomolgy/Bugs/Insects Question (Oregon)

Please help identify the decedent. My son seems to be having a bug week. Today at work, he came upon this insect. He held it to the sky and noticed a almost transparent space between the thorax and abdomen of the insect. It did not appear to posses a stinger. We’d be interested in identifying the make and model of this bug.

    Apparently a “Window Fly” or Black Soldier Fly: http://www.whatsthatbug.com/2010/09/12/window-fly/, where would we be without Google?

    Wow that is an interesting feature on that bug. I’m sorry though because I have no clue whatsover what it is. He has the shape of something we call a dirt dauber but I doubt that’s what it is. N 🙂
