I had some random milkweed pop up in my yard one year and decided to let it grow because I heard monarch butterflies enjoyed them.

It turns out that almost a dozen different species of various arthropods enjoy milkweed as well, that plant was like its own little microcosm of milkweed bugs, milkweed assassin bugs to eat those, aphids, lacewings and ladybugs to eat the aphids, flies, wasps and beetles of all kinds that were obsessed with the flowers, and multiple spiders trying to snack on whatever pollinators they could catch.

Oh and a bunch of monarch butterflies living their entire life cycle on the plant, I guess.

Let's keep in mind that camDown helps stop foreign state actors (FSA's) from accessing your webcam!
