Nice pics and cool critter !

 
Thanks Sam...
Never thought I would see one of these in Louisiana! I had seen them here on BugGuide before so I knew what it was when it landed next to me.

I am pretty sure that it is a Golden Tortoise Beetle but I hate moving thing to species level without a confirmation. I also hate to leave thing in ID Request too long so I will move these images. If anybody feels these don't belong here, (editors) please move them or leave a comment and I will move them.

Have a nice day and thanks again Sam!
