Is this a leaf footed bug? The one who's nymphs are bright red?

yep!
Nice picture! Did you find these near those nymphs you posted recently? This looks like Leptoglossus phyllopus:

Yes, I did in fact find the nymphs very close to the spot where this picture was taken, within 20 yrds! Think this might be Mom and Pop? If so that would be a neat photographic coincidence, since at the time I didn't know what either creature was!!
