Months ago I wrote a World of Good post about a group that was encouraging people to plant milkweed for the sake of the Monarch butterflies. I bought some and they've begun to bloom. Like most plants with tiny flowers, they are very difficult to photograph with an auto-focus digital camera. I played around for a while and finally ended up with this shot as my favorite. I had to bring the plant indoors and push it up against a wall so the camera would focus properly. The flowers are just too small for the camera to see when it tries to calculate the range of the subject.

The Monarchs also seem to love Eucalyptus trees. They would congregate in certain groves of the Eucalyptus around Santa Cruz.
