large milkweed bug nymph - Oncopeltus fasciatus

large milkweed bug nymph - Oncopeltus fasciatus
Roswell, Fulton County, Georgia, USA
August 30, 2013
This individual was seen among other nymphs of varying sizes on a butterfly weed (Asclepias tuberosa) seed pod.

EDIT: I originally thought that this was an albino; however, I been advised that this insect has "just molted. If you come back a few hours later, its coloration would be the usual one."
