The Bugs like Milkweed

Here are some more photos of the beautiful Milkweed, with some extra “guests.” Now insects like all flowers of course, but I wonder if those bugs, flies and wasps also feed off Milkweed to make themselves a less attractive prey to birds, like the Monarch butterflies apparently do.

Anyway, here are some photos of insects enjoying one of my favorite wildflowers. I still prefer to think that Milkweed smells like sweet fruit and vanilla – and not baby powder, as some friends suggested. :-}
