The Cycle Starts Again
Well done Janice!
We don't often see shots of ovipositing Monarchs, even though it is a popular species on TN. The POV and sharpness are excellent and the emerging egg is clearly visible.
TFS and enjoy your weekend,

A really great capture of this female Monarch laying her eggs. Beautiful texture and colours in the wings, the greens in the foliage really stand out against that grey background, excellent work t.f.s
Cheers Rick :)

Pin sharp, beautiful colors, much details ...
Looks like you could start your own business with exporting Monarchs' eggs to rest of the world :-) Beautifull colours, very good details. And first of all superb moment my friend!

a very pretty, powerful capture of a beautiful moment.
I love those juicy fresh colours, and the clear composition.
Interesting facts on the species' reproduction coming with youor notes.
A pleasure to see such a cheerfully optimistic image on a cold and dark northern hemisphere winter day.
With thanks, and all my best wishes to you!

Very nice shot of the Monarch. Since it is winter here all of our Monarchs have headed to Mexico. I like the focus on the head and antenna.

A beautiful capture of this oviposting Monarch.
The colours are vivid and well saturated.
The neutral BG makes a terrific back drop to show off this beauty.
Nicely composed ,I like how the plant flows diagonally through the frame.
