Not sure if I am on the right track, as I perused the plant bug photos and didn't see any quite like this. Found it in the shady overgrown area behind my garage. It ran off before I could get any more clear photos of other angles. I do have some additional not-so-clear photos if there are questions about other body parts. Thanks for any thoughts on this one.

P.S. I may or may not be falling in love with plant bugs. If anyone can recommend a book on identification, I would appreciate that as well.
