Well, we’re just two weeks later than when I discovered the Small Milkweed Bugs mating and here are some tiny guys feasting on a Mexican Milkweed seed pod. I’m guessing they are the nymphs?
Oh, and I have discovered Monarch eggs on the milkweed. Too small for my camera to photograph successfully, though!
