Small Milkweed Bugs

What’s this bug?
This picture was taken 1/8/08 at about 10am at Watertown, NY. The surface has a SE exposure and the outside temperature is about 62 deg. F. Thank you.

Hi Bob,
These are actually Small Milkweed Bugs, Lygaeus kalmii. We mistakenly originally identified them as Boxelder Bugs, but actually magnifying the original thumbnail revealed our original error.
