In photo #4, that sure does look like surprise on the one insect’s face… “Oh hey! I didn’t expect to see you here!”. Yes, I realize I am anthropomorphizing. :-)
“This dandelion ain’t big enough for the both of us!”
“Well, now that I’m here, it does seem kind of roomy, and since you’re breaking open those seeds and eating what you can get, I’ll just use my built-in straw to suck out what you leave behind. Win-win!”
*In final shot*
“I’M KING OF THE WORLD!”
“What did you say?”
“Oh, nothing. Just keep breaking open those seeds. I’ll be down there in a minute.”
In the third shot you can see the proboscis on the little green bug fully deployed, gobbling up food. In the following shot you can see it tucked up under the body.
Beautiful pictures. I love the fourth one. The “suprised” look on the green bugs face is very funny. You are certainly making good use of your new camera, Kengi.

The false milkweed bug has a really nice jacket. I wonder what a evening gown with a derivative of that design would look like?
