The Non-Monarch Photo of the Day

In a previous HMBY post there was information telling us that the Milkweed is the only plant a Monarch caterpillar will eat. So I bought one in late summer intending it to be a draw for Monarchs looking to lay their eggs. One day while searching for Monarch eggs I found these: Aphids. I took the photo with my smartphone and then enlarged it quite a bit to see this. Do you see the hole above them? I am unsure of they made that or if there was a Monarch caterpillar here at one time.
