Hi injica!
I didn't enhance the colors but it was really sunny that day, maybe is the reason the it seems so orange, but I think is Lachnaia sexpunctata!
thank you so much for the id!

definitelly a leaf beetle, don't know its size, but if its bigger than is Lachnaia sexpunctata, if its smaller like a ladybird or so than Clytra quadripunctata L. http://www.biolib.cz/en/image/id173938/ Also I don't know if you enhance the colors but Lachnaia sexpunctata is more yellowish than orange, here is my spotting http://www.projectnoah.org/spottings/249...
