I've never seen this bug before... Very interesting!

I'm not sure which one is the prettier, though I would guess that the bug's colouring is to warn predators that it's either poisonous or foul tasting.

I don't think I've ever seen a milkweed bug before. With those colors he would be a good Halloween bug.

I did not know what kind of bug that is. Cool capture. It seems the plant is well named.

Oooooo, how pretty. But that milkweed bug looks a bit unusual and wondering if they are harmless or not.
