Wordless Wednesday: Milkweed Bugs

MilkweedBugs_IMG_5012

Almost wordless: Destructive little critters were eating the Milkweed seeds. Interestingly, they have the same coloring as the Monarchs, who also feed on the Milkweed. And like the Monarchs, the sap they eat from the Milkweed makes them toxic to predators. These were in the prairie. I prefer they not visit my milkweed patch.

    Glad they weren’t in your garden! I never thought about what they share with monarchs — very interesting
