I agree with Coreidae, Leaf-footed bug (please, correct the mis-spelling) and it is a nymph. But I am not sure if this really is Leptoglossus phyllopus, I am not even sure if it is a Leptoglossus sp.. Nymphs are often almost impossible to ID. I certainly see some similarities with Leptoglossus phyllopus, but I would not dare to confirm that. These nymphs are showing an amazing change in appearance during the different stages:http://bugguide.net/node/view/4713/bgima...http://bugguide.net/node/view/24096/bgpa...http://bugguide.net/node/view/113113/bgi...http://bugguide.net/node/view/31170/bgim...http://bugguide.net/node/view/72103/bgim...unid nymph, which looks very similar to yours:http://bugguide.net/node/view/575159/bgi...http://bugguide.net/node/view/575160/bgi...If you are sure you may leaf it as Leptoglossus phyllopus. if you are not sure I personally would go with Leaf-footed Bug Nymph and Coreidae.
Nicely captured... its physical structure... and shades... beautifully presented.... True Nature photography.... Its a Leaf footed Bug.
