Aphids

Aphids
Elkton, Douglas County, Oregon, USA
July 24, 2009
I see what may be two types of aphids, or possible the same type of aphid in two different stages of development. In the center of the image are two pinkish/beige aphids. Below them is a somewhat smaller green aphid. I have no idea what plant they're on. I understand that knowing what plant an aphid is on can help determine what kind of aphid it is, but to me, it's just a weed that sprouts up here and there in the yard. I'm including a larger image that shows more of the plant. The cross spider's a freebie.
