This was in my glass of water and it ended up in my mouth. I spit it out in my hand and it was very much alive. I'm worried if it may have been a blister beetle because it looked like it on-line? I know blister beetles can be poisonous so I'm worried a bit. These things are all over my flowering bushes outside and at night they are on my screens.
