What is this lovely insect with the two-tone orange-peel look?

Moved from ID Request.

We would suggest

Nymph of some sort
Looks like some kind of shield bug (Pentatomoidea) nymph, morphologically similar to http://bugguide.net/node/view/321185

 
Just discovered...
That it is apparently a Twice-stabbed stink bug nymph (Cosmopepla lintne [sp?]). If that's the case, ironically, I took a photo of an adult yesterday and it's a beautiful Black & red Stink Bug (that's the name they give it in my insect book). Hopefully, the 2 photos will go on the same page together in my upcoming book/album as a transitional stage.
