Unidentified Leaf Beetle
I’m pretty sure this is some sort of leaf beetle, although I can’t seem to find which one. Maybe a swamp milkweed leaf beetle? It was photographed along the margins of a small lake (I would call it a pond with water running in and out) not far from the eastern shores of southern Lake Huron. Sure would like to know what it is.

Hi again Nadjia,
This is a Swamp Milkweed Leaf Beetle, Labidomera clivicollis. As its name implies, it lives near swamps, meadows, roadsides with milkweed, especially wetlands with Swamp Milkeed, Asclepias incarnata. The markings are highly variable from individual to individual. We located some information on BugGuide.
