It looks like an immature insect in the order Hemiptera. Are you seeing it in numbers on plants you have brought into the home for winter? If you want a species ID I would need more time to key it out.

Hi, Thanks for the response. I found the bug in July in the park where I was doing some macro photography. I am interesting in it because it is very colorful. It will be very nice it you can ID the species. Thank you very much. Paul.

This is an immature true bug (Hemiptera), possibly a stink bug. Species determination is not possible at this early stage of development.
