Pictures from Phoenix and sometimes from the surrounding cities that make up the "Valley of the Sun"

I made a second trip to the Monarch Butterfly display at the Desert Botanical Gardens. This is the fifth year that the garden has hosted the seasonal display with hundreds of Monarch Butterflies inside a pavilion especially designed for the exhibit. I went the first time about a week ago and it was still very hot weather so the butterflies weren’t very cooperative for a photo shoot. Over the weekend, the temperature dropped by 20 degrees making the afternoons perfect for being outside. The butterflies seemed to love the cooler weather too! They were a lot more active and very obliging to all the camera laden observers.
Desert Botanical Gardens is another Phoenix Point of Pride. I'm sure I'll be featuring other pictures from this wonderful place in the future.
Angie of Tempe Daily Photo has also been featuring some photos from the Monarch display. Check it out.
