Misti, I think Danita is right, those do look more like leaf footed bugs.
Good eye Danita!

Although, the assassin bugs do seem to like to congregate on the sunflowers! They do here every year. Although this year I've been seeing some Black and White Warblers frequenting the sunflower seeds and the assassin bugs are gone... either they flew away or the Warblers ate them too. Hilarious!

Here's a pic of the Wheeler Assassin Bug.

As you can see, the assassin bug has a prominent crest type hump on the upper back.

edit my type-o's... hopefully got them all.
FAITH over fear!
