Monarch Laying Eggs

SmugMug Daily Link

I was back in the vicinity of the sunflower shots that I took last week when I discovered some milkweed and a monarch butterfly.  I only had a few minutes but snapped off as many pics as I could. In all of them, the monarch is laying eggs and not eating.  Pretty cool.  If you look closely in this shot, you can see the abdomen bending and touching the plant so that egg(s) can be deposited.
