What a stunning creature this is but I have no idea just what it is. Very happy to see it through the screen and not on me though ;)
 
Excellent photo Donny! All I can say for sure is it's not a spider, beyond that I've got nothing.

Thanks for the comments and for looking. I think it is a type of Assassin Bug from this link.
