I am back in Paris but have this saved post from Arizona.
I’ve been reading about the Phoenix Desert Botanical Garden for some time and the other evening Maurice and I went there right before sunset to escape walking around in the sun and hoping to get good light for photos.
There was a butterfly pavillion and we saw many, including this one with neon green in its wings. I was surprised to be able to see the screen behind it through the wings.
The best shot I got with evening light with one of the McDowel Mountains in the background.
Cactus all over the place, planted there along well tended paths.
Pretty architectural details.
Strange sajuaro head-not often seen.
Art work in the light after the sun set.
I would love to be here when they do Christmas lights.
There was a full moon although this sort of looks like the sun. One of these days I hope to get a good shot of the moon with my iPhone.
