orange-black bugs

Orange & black marked bugs were spotted twice yesterday and once again today on the orange double day lily and the swamp milk weed plants. What bug this is?  I have no idea. What a great color it has, the bright color may be to warn birds do not to eat its' sour carcass. I see  in the black marking on the back of its body a black heart. To see that detail, open the blow up of the first bug picture in the milk weed fairies.  I hope they don't harm the flowers. Then there was that tiny ant on one of the last pink day lilies. It is sweet there all alone, high in the sky, 30 inches off the ground on the lip of the flower's petal fearlessly searching for some nectar.
