Monarch Butterfly anticipating some nectar

After planting my first butterfly garden 2 years ago, I was very happy to see Monarch caterpillars on the milk weed. I had watched this Monarch Butterfly from caterpillar to chrysalis to emerging. I see this Monarch Butterfly often and was watching it flying onto a Milk weed for some nectar.
