Can anyone identify this bug for me, I found one on my tomato and two on my sweet pepper. Both plants were purchased from burpee. I haven't found anymore bugs on anything I started from seed.

The Clavate Tortoise Beetle - a type of leaf beetle.
You don't want it there.

(Cucumber Beetles, Flea Beetles, Potato Beetles are other leaf beetle examples).
