Damsel bug? - Metatropiphorus belfragii
Hampshire County, Massachusetts, USA

Looks like a species of Damsel bug...perhaps even this type. Can anyone confirm?

I would be more tempted to say Miridae, but you could be right. I'd need more images of various anatomical parts to be positive one way or another. If you have more shots, please post them and link them. Thanks!

I've got a few extra shots...should I be focusing on certain areas? lemme know...
