Thanks, Carlos
All shot with a Nikon D750 and a Tamron 180mm Macro plus extension tubes. The extreme closeup of the monarch pupa and needle is a 18 pix stack shot with a Zonguyi Sper Macro lens + extension tube.

There's a glitch in the description: image #2 is an excellent photo of a monarch larva and needle.
