Big Bug Invasion
Big (and I do mean big) bugs have invaded the Desert Botanical Garden. Just look at the size of this praying mantis. The assortment of 11 huge insects are the creation of artist David Rogers who constructs them out of fallen wood, cut saplings, twigs, twine and bark. The insects weigh anywhere from 300 to 1200 pounds (136K to 544K). It's a whimsical exhibition with fun for all ages.
