Monarch Butterfly Close-Winged Close-Up

I like this photo because of the contrast between monarch and flowers.

For the life of me, I can't remember what these white flowers are called and they are not as focused as the butterfly so I'm not hopeful this mystery will ever be solved. No worries though, because this plant is not a
butterfly magnet.

This nature photo is taken on a hanging plant in our back yard. I put many of the monarchs there to dry their wings so they're out of reach from Ms. Lina...our canine backyard nature terrorist. She seems to prefer Peter Cottontail to the butterflies though.

Camera: Nikon D60 with 18-55mm Zoom lens.

Butterfly facts: Monarchs are located in the following regions of the world: United States, southern Canada, Carribean islands, Australia, and New Zealand...and ,of course, remote parts of Mexico during their winter migration.
