Unknown spotting

Description:

About 1 cm long beetle. Bright orange and black with long antenna. You can’t see the antennae because it went into a defensive pose on my hand, then flew away.

Habitat:

In a mixed field near milkweed plants.

Notes:

I think because of the aposomatic coloration, it may be poisonous.
