There's only about a week left to see theMariposa Monarca Monarch Butterfly Exhibit at Desert Botanical Garden
. The exhibit, which closes November 14, appears at DBG every year, and remains the best way to get up close and personal with hundreds of beautiful butterflies.
We attended this past weekend, and managed to take more stunning shots of the creatures than we know what to do with.
Visitors to the Desert Botanical Garden can wander a variety of gardens set up with succulents and flowers to attract various creatures, from hummingbirds to bees. The Monarch butterfly exhibit is housed in theMaxine and Jonathan Marshall Butterfly Pavilion
, named for the former owners ofThe Scottsdale Daily Progress
, who established a multi-million dollar charitable fund to establish the pavilion, among other social and charitable donations.
