Allison10-Thank you! I'm not sure as the internet says this about them, "Adult squash bugs (fig. 1) are somewhat flattened, large insects, measuring 5/8 inch long and 1/3 inch wide. They are usually dark gray to dark brown" This fellow was tan to white in color. It also says, "It primarily attacks squash and pumpkins but can also attack other cucurbits, such as cucumbers." This bug was on a flower (Black-eyed Susan?) in the park with no vegetables or gardens anywhere nearby...
