    Not sure if you can tell from the poor photo (image wouldn't resolve too well), but could this be a bed bug?

    I'm not a pro so please wait for expert confirmation, but that appears to have wings, which would make it NOT a bed bug. This link takes you to the images section of the site: (to take a peek at while waiting on a pro) http://bedbugger.com/bed-bug-images/

    I am, by no means, a pro. I'm simply a person that has had unfortunate luck, and somehow acquired the little guys.
    Any/all 'advice' I have to share is based on my own personal history and/or things I've read from the professionals on this site.
    My profession is medical, which is where I am confident in any advice I give, however rare it may be.

    It doesn't appear to have wings, just a bit squished (since I caught it on my leg). I guess the pics aren't good, but the best I could take!

    Here's another pic in the cold light of day. Unfortunately it's quite small, and very dead, so hard to get a good photo

    Image too grainy on zooming in, but doesn't look like a bed bug nymph.
