I took this picture about a month ago (10-24-10). I really have no idea what kind of bug it is and would love some help on an ID.

What's That Bug?????: Damsel Bug we believe

Hi Nathanael,
Daniel had a really rough week and he is baking Sliva Crumble to take to an early turkey dinner.  This is a True Bug in the suborder Heteroptera.  It appears to be predatory and we do not believe it is a Damsel Bug.  We will try searching BugGuide when we have a chance.  Meanwhile, we are starting a spin-off of the original What’s That Bug? and it will be a doppleganger of What’s That Bug? Tagged What’s That Bug?

Well, tell Daniel that I hope he can have a relaxing weekend and Thanksgiving.  I appreciate you guys getting to this so quickly and now that you have given me a direction to go, I will do some searching as well.  I will reply back if I find anything promising.

We finally had an opportunity to check out the Damsel Bugs on BugGuide and we believe this individual looks very much like a member of the genus
Nabis that is pictured on Bugguide.
