just sent a note – have to correct it. This was found on Jan 11, 2014 in Houston. And I didn’t upload all the shots

This is a beneficial, predatory Milkweed Assassin Bug nymph, Zelus longipes, and it should be handled with caution as they are known to bite. The bite is not considered dangerous, but it can be painful.
Thanks so much – I’ll be caredul!
