Normally, we’re not big fans of bugs. In fact, we sort of hate them. The single exception to that rule is the butterfly. Attractive, harmless, and generally shy towards people, they’re the easy favorite when it comes to crawly creepers. That’s why you’ll find us chasing the winged insect at the Desert Botanical Garden’s Spring Butterfly Exhibit.
If you haven’t visited a butterfly habitat before, then you’ve probably never seen the flocks of fluttering creatures that will sip nectar so close you could reach out and pat them on the wing. From giant Great Southern Whites butterflies to the recognizable Monarch variety, you won’t get a better view of their scaly wings anywhere else in the Valley.
