The Question Mark
We had a bit of a reprieve from the heat last week when a cool front moved in and we were rewarded with temperatures in the 70's. I took the opportunity to visit the Desert Botanical Garden in the late afternoon for a change and I visited the butterfly pavilion one last time before it closes next week. I found a new butterfly to admire, the Question Mark butterfly. When I first spotted it sitting on that slice of orange, I thought it was a dead leaf. It looks so drab.
One of the docents saw me looking at it and told me that when it opens its wings, it's a gorgeous butterfly. I found one in the distance sitting on a lavender flower and saw that she was right. The bottom of its wings hides the beauty on the top side.
I have a new post on Sharon's Sojourns today. I have the second part to my trip to Sunnylands. What a fabulous place!
