Photographer's Note

The Desert Botanical Garden is a 140 acre botanical garden located within Papago Park in Phoenix, Arizona, USA. Founded by the Arizona Cactus and Native Flora Society in 1937 and established at this site in 1939, the garden now has more than 21,000 plants, in more than 4000 locations, one-third of which are native to the area, including 139 species which are rare, threatened or endangered.
It is one of only 44 botanical gardens accredited by the American Association of Museums, this one-of-a-kind museum showcases 50 acres of beautiful outdoor exhibits. Home to 139 rare, threatened and endangered plant species from around the world, the Garden offers interesting and inspiring experiences to more than 300,000 visitors each year.
From early March until early May, the Butterfly Pavilion presents dozens of butterflies flying through the closed area with high humidity and treats on tables for them. I have about a dozen pictures that I took there last week, but I like this one the best. I hope you viewers like it as well.
