My favorite butterfly is the Malachite Butterfly and I was a little disappointed when I didn’t see any in this year’s spring showing of butterflies at the Desert Botanical Garden. I visited several times and on my last visit, I finally saw one and only one. They arrange sliced oranges on various feeder plates inside the pavilion to give the butterflies something to taste other than the large variety of flowers. The one lone malachite butterfly that I saw was sitting on an orange slice on a rather colorful glass dish. I think the combination of colors makes an interesting photo.
