Hi Daniel,
Here are two Milkweed Bugs that look as though they are kissing. Below them is a nymph. Are they kissing, protecting the nymph from my prying lens, or something altogether different? They sat like this for quite some time.

Hi Anna,
We have no idea what these Large Milkweed Bugs are doing, but it is still a very lovely and interesting photo.  Perhaps one of our readers will know what is going on.
