Butterfly Exhibit at the Botanical Gardens

Each spring at the Phoenix Desert Botanical Gardens, they have a butterfly exhibit.  You can go inside a big mesh tent right with the butterflies.  Just swarms of them.  I'd never seen anything like it.  Very, very beautiful.

Here are some:

Giant swallowtail
White peacock
Zebra longwing

Gulf fritillary (top of wings)

The display usually ends in mid May.  The rest of the botanical gardens are really awesome too.  Plan plenty of time.  Also, consider checking out a culture pass from the library--good for 2 admissions.  :)
