What is this bug? Did we discover a new insect? Someone please help id!!

We tried to find something to do on the cheap this weekend. We decided to go on a nature walk and see what we could find. It was a lot of fun. We found several blackberry bushes that showed promise. On a positive and disgusting note, we also found 7 ticks on just the 4 of us that went on the walk. Awesome. The fun part about being a geek is that most science things are fascinating! Can anyone help us id this cool little bug?
