I’ve been so busy extolling the virtues of the wonderful Chihuly glass art that has been displayed at the Desert Botanical Gardens over the past seven months, that I think I haven’t said enough about what a wonderful garden it is without those fantastic art pieces.
On Sunday morning, I went back to the garden along with a good number of others for one last look at the glass installations before they are removed. I must say that I found myself drawn by not only the art, but by the fantastic display of nature also. Thousands of cactus were in full bloom and there were still many wildflowers about. There were birds, lizards, and squirrels about for visitors to enjoy. And, very near the huge Chihuly glass art installation called “The Sun” was this dragonfly flitting between flowers.
So while other cameras were all focused on the extraordinary works of art, my camera was chasing this dragonfly until I was able to capture its image to share with you. I feel much better knowing that the artworks may be gone, but mother nature will still provide her own magic in this very special corner of Phoenix.
