Peacock butterfly eggs

Today I photographed these peacock butterfly eggs!

 - a good spot you might think as they were on the underside of a stinging nettle or common nettle leaf, and you would have been right in thinking so if it hadn't been for the fact that yesterday I watched the peacock butterfly as she was in the process of laying them - So I knew exactly where to look for them today!

I didn't watch her for long and hopefully kept a respectful distance, at least 6 feet away, even when photographing her,  as some moments deserve to remain private, I would hate to be going about my daily routines with a monster poking a great big camera lens in my face all the time!!!
