I saw those during a search, but it didn't look similar to any of the common ones I found referenced. Now I'm very curious! :)

Anne: it certainly seems to match—thanks! I'm going to update the ID based on this.

It moved quickly, so it was hard to get a decent photo of it with my phone. Too bad, the color and markings were pretty striking.

Good question—haven't a clue! Hoping someone here can help ID it.

Neat! What are the black, glassy circular structures—three small, one larger—on its dorsal abdomen? They're visible in the second photo, despite being blurry.
