  1. That orange milkweed is what the Monarch Butterfly lays its eggs on, the larvae eat the whole plant and turn into butterflies. This is a weed that grows wild in Arkansas.

    Beautiful! I love the colour you’ve captured. It lit up my whole screen. Everyone loves milkweed. Even most people. I’ve seen more kinds of insects visiting than I can count. It is truly a keystone species if there ever was one.
