Nature All Around Me (6) ( The Milkweed Bugs)

These are Milkweed Bugs. What's the plant they're sitting on? It's a Milkweed plant. I really like the picture below. My mom likes it too. Those fluffy things in front, they're Milkweed seeds. Why is the plant called a Milkweed? Well, it has a liquid that looks like milk, but this is poisonous. It's also how the Monarch butterfly makes itself taste bad.

Today was really windy, so the Milkweed Bugs were all piled up. (That's what they do when it's really cold.)


  1. Note to my grandma: I have a picture for you.

  2. I am looking forward to seeing the picture you have for me. What can it be? Guess I'll have to wait and see. I like the way the milkweed bugs are all huddled inside the milkweed seed. What a nice house they have! Love, Grandma

  3. I love milkweed seeds but have to say I am not so crazy about the bugs.
