Fairly small beetle - those white flowers are about 4-5mm. I don't think this is a leaf beetle (Chrysomelidae)?? If someone can tell me what family it belongs to at least ...
After some more research, I'm starting to lean towards Melyridae. Maybe collops sp. ????
Or it may be a checkerspot beetle: Cleridae.
By the way, it is a beautiful photo of a beautiful bug. Congratulations.
Anne, try Cantharidae.
