These are adult harlequin bugs.  They are members of the stinkbug family and cause damage by inserting their piercing/sucking mouthparts into plant tissue to feed on the sap.  They can be pests on a number of brassica crops like collards, kale, mustard, turnips, broccoli, etc.  For more information including control, take a look at this publication.

Here is this week’s question:  What are these little brown things?  Hint:  Found on the underside of a squash leaf.
