Hi all! Can you help me id this bug? I will post pictures if I can.

It is an insect (6 legs), two segmented body, all orange except 3 black spots down the back. It is small, about 2 cm. Recently a few have gotten slightly bigger, and when they do they lose the orange color and become brown. There have been lots of the orange ones, and they seem to like to congregate together on one or two plants, though the plant they pick changes daily. I have not seen any damage as of yet, and I don't want to kill something without reason. Any idea what it is?

Thanks,

Michelle
