Milkweeds in June, Nearing Blossom

Blossoms are starting to form on this familiar plant.  Soon there should bloom.
This is one of my favorites: common milkweed.  There are common insect associations with milkweeds.
Like this Monarch, they rely solely on this plant.  Eggs are laid here and her caterpillars feed on it.

Today I found an unexpected visitor.
Not exactly sure what this little guy is doing here.  Maybe just as a place to blend in and hide for protection?  There are only a select few caterpillars that will eat a milkweed, and this guy is not one of them.

Hope you enjoyed!
