Surprise! A First Instar

A female monarch was in our garden laying eggs so i tried to photograph them with my new camera. I decided to try to take a photo of an egg I have been monitoring in our garden which was under a leaf. Without looking at it, I lifted the leaf and took two photos. I can not believe what I discovered when I looked at the photos. Photo taken in the Gilliland butterfly garden on July 2, 2014, West Duluth, MN, with my new Canon SX50, using the macro mode.
