Milkweed revisited


Monarch caterpillars in abundance!


This one has just shed its skin.



A milkweed bug is caught in the act of moulting.





More milkweed bugs suck the last bit of goodness out of a seed pod before the seeds fly away.


A ladybug larva eats a yellow aphid on a milkweed flower bud. On the bud stem to the left of the ladybug is another larva, possibly a lacewing.
