Bug of the Week: Monarch Butterfly Laying Egg

It is November, but a few days ago I spotted a monarch butterfly circling our yard. With a bit of patience and serendipity,  I was able to catch it in action (refresh if the video player is wonky).


Yes, it laid an egg on the rush milkweed.

I'll be keeping an eye on the plant and let you know if anything hatches.

Here's an earlier photo from December 15, 2010.
