Description:

Saw the butterfly slowly flying in and of bushes and followed her. She settled on her selected leaf and started laying eggs, while hanging under the leaf. Seemed to lay one egg at a time, her abdomen returning to rest between her wings between laying. I'll be closely watching this leaf to see what happens and what the caterpillars look like and how they develop.
