Caption: Milkweed bugs feeding on the ripe seed pods of the milkweed plant, Asclepias curassavica, Trinidad. The bugs display bright warning colours and gather in conspicuous groups. They are poisonous, having sequestered toxins from the poisonous milkweed sap. Two winged adults and several nymphs (juveniles) are visible in this image.
