I only got two pictures of this guy before he did the ol' "fall down off the plant" trick. I don't need to know exactly what species this is, but I'd never seen anything quite like it and thought it was cool so if you could just point me in the right direction, I would be most appreciative.

I think your bug might be an assassin bug nymph.

Maybe Pselliopus cinctus

It sure is a colorful assassin bug.

Big thank you for the acorn and thumbs up. Smiling
