Crane fly?


This insect has wings spread out like an airplane. This spotting is the only time I saw such an insect, and thought it might be a crane fly of some sort. Please help me solve this puzzle.


Back porch. It didn't stay long enough on the tonkin jasmine leaf for me to take better shots.

I don't think it's a fly.
I know that the bugs of the Zoraida genus looks like that.
