So giving you one with more life stages.

Multigenerational Milkweed Bug Aggregation

Dear Martzart,
We hope you aren’t too upset that we took your gorgeous piece of art and cropped it and flopped it so that it would better fit our format.  Most of the nymphs in your photograph are coevals, but we are not certain if it is the third or fourth instar.  The tiny nymph and the winged adult in the lower right corner make your image a wonderful documentation of a multigenerational aggregation.
