Very nice!Cindy is absolutely right - it is a wheel bug nymph! Please can you update the common & scientific names now that you have an ID. Thanks!

This is an Assassin Bug nymph. They can bite if provoked. According to Wikipedia "If harassment continues, they can use their rostrum to deliver a painful bite which in some species can be medically significant."
