This milkweed seed was attached to the wings of a bee collected in a pan trap. The seed is small and red. Two white petals are attached to the seed, giving the overall structure a Y shape, with the seed making up the bottom of the Y and the petals extending out.

I believe this plant species to be milkweed. Milkweed has a variety of species and this also is considered perennial. This is an important species because it is vital for insects. The nectar is what attracts the insects to the plant. They can also grow up to about 2 or 3 ft tall. The plant at this location doesn't seem to be as healthy or green as it typically should appear.
