Mating Milkweed Bugs

Whenever I pass milkweeds I look to see if there is a monarch caterpillar on them. No such luck as yet, but today I did spot these busy milkweed bugs (Lygaeus kalmii) on a milkweed. They were a bit camera shy and didn't have any trouble coordinating their movements to scuttle away from the camera.
