She doesn't seem to be interested in the aphids nearby :-)

Late summer 2018, we also watched this amazing event. I knew there was an unusual creature staying in our row of milkweed on the south side of our Bettendorf, IA home, but had not given it much thought. Then one early evening, I noticed it making an "egg pod" on a steel post, supporting the milkweed plants. Since then, I have watched them mating, (once the male's head was gone), found a total of nine egg pods, fed them and held them. Last week, two moved to the front of our garage onto flowering begonias.

Amazing photos! Would you be willing to share the technical details of how you captured them?

For months, I've had the remains of an ootheca on my shelf, wondering "WTB?" Thanks for these images!!
