Nature/WildlifeLarge milkweed bug nymphs

 

Large milkweed bug nymphs (Oncopeltus fasciatus) on a milkweed plant (Asclepias syriaca). The nymphs absorb toxins from feeding on the milkweed that make them distasteful to predators. Their bright orange colour serves as a warning of this. Photographed in Ohio, USA.
