New milkweed stalk in my garden this year, next to the wisteria. May have been the seed from the other milkweed plant carried to this new location. There are monarchs in this area each year.

Trying to start identifying Skippers other then Fiery. Appreciate any thoughts on this one.
I saw this red headed bug flying around and took best picture I could before flying off. This appears to be a red-headed sawfly, however in Dallas area, we don't really have pine trees so not sure that this id is correct or it is just a wandering bug. Please let me know what you think. It was about 1/2 inch long.
