Leptoglossus zonatus
Doing some extra research, it seems as if this may be an example of leptoglossus zonatus. That said, isn't it a bit far North for him to be traveling? I am in Orange County, North Carolina.

Nothing like L. zonatus :)
Compare your image with L. zonatus, below. Look at the overall shape, the pattern on the back, and the shape of the tibial extensions (the leaflike flanges on the hind legs).

Your specimen is Acanthocephala declivis, without a doubt.

Why, thank you!
You, my friend, have a good eye! Thank you, Ken. Clearly they are related, though, are they not?
Kind regards,

Most definitely related.
Both are in the same subfamily, but different tribes.

You're welcome :)

A point of clarification
Hi Ken! Do you only keep images of bugs you don't have portraits of already?

Acanthocephala declivis

Welcome to BugGuide!

Why, thank you!
I am so happy to find this site. I will keep a file on all the interesting individuals I encounter here in my Carolina garden.
