Unnamed spotting

Description:

Tiny, colorful creature with upper portion red and blue and lower body bright yellow. Two red areas appear to be false eyes on the upper portion.

Habitat:

Backyard garden on milkweed plant.

Notes:

I have seen this creature several times on the milkweed but always stationary. The upper portion of the body seems to be wings but I have not seen it fly.
