Found on the edge of the side walk during the day in Colorado. I don't think I e ever seen these guys before and I've lived here quite a while. They have a proboscis and small wings. I'm thinking they are snacking on the silver fish, there was a boom of them recently and I don't see them much since these guys showed up. Or they could be sucking plant juice I suppose.

Just realized you can't see the scale so I'd say they are about 4 mm

Juvenile (apparently) true bug of some sort.
