Small Milkweed Bugs

I'm happy to say I have both large and small milkweed bugs this year on the asclepias plants. This is a pair of the small ones, Lygaeus kalmii, doing their part to make even more small milkweed bugs. Although the two species superficially resemble each other, compare here and see how different their markings really are.
