Any idea what this guy is?

Nice Pic
I found one of these on my bed 2 years ago (I'm from Oakville {Glen Abbey...}too, incidentally!) and I thought I was seeing things...after talking to all my bio friends and even an entomology major, finally figured out what it was...thanks to Bugguide! Good job guys!!

Moved from Masked Hunter.

Welcome to BugGuide!

Looks like the masked hunter nymph

I agree, and one of the best images of one I've ever seen. Thanks for sharing your skills here.

Hard to tell
but the antennae don't look right for a beetle. Possibly a reduviid nymph?
