Stink Bug
I'm not certain which species.

stink bug
Thank you...I think it is a Brown Marmorated stink bug.

Not, Brown Marmorated Stink Bug
Not Halyomorpha - antennae different and single-pointed spines on the shoulders not present on Halymorpha. It may be Genus Apateticus, see Photo#70834 in this BugGuide.
It also resembles Genus Podisus.

A stink bug
I feel it looks more like the Genus Apateticus after looking at your photo. I'll change the name. Thank you for your help.

I agree.
Apateticus are much larger than Podisus, but otherwise look very similar. Neat find!
