This beetle's defenses have a clear windshield and gold pinstriping

Insect photographer Andreas Kay shot this remarkable golden tortoise beetle. They are not only beautiful, but they also have a number of impressive evolutionary traits. Their feet are really good at gripping leaves, so they can seal their elytra (their hard wing coverings) so they are flush to the leaf's surface, making it hard for predators to pry them loose. While sealed, this species from Ecuador can still see what's happening, thanks to a clear section of elytron in front.

If you ever watched Battlebots, you know that some models biomimicked beetles like this.

They can also be found in North America, much to the delight of various lovely folks who note they change to a rust color when disturbed:
