Close.
This little beauty is the nymph of a mirid plant bug, family Miridae. Knowing the plant it was on might help with a more specific identification. Oh, how did I know it was a mirid? The most obvious reason is that the antennae are much longer than those of a milkweed bug at any of its life stages.
