Butterfly on swan plant

Auckland / Mount Eden / 2019-10-13 11:00:00

I saw the butterfly, it was resting on the plant which my neighbor said they lay eggs on! It was quite still so I thought maybe it was laying eggs, but I’m not at all positive. I did see two little white pinheads on the leaf, and I’m 99% positive they are monarch eggs!
