A Tiny Milkweed Universe

A whole universe exists on milkweeds. Besides the Monarch eggs and caterpillars, I've seen ants attending aphids and the worlds created by milkweed bugs seen here.

These tiny guys, no bigger than an average ant, will grow to be a little less than an inch. Because they feed on milkweed they are are poison to most predators just like Monarch Butterflies.
