Zebra Longwing Butterfly

Butterfly Exhibit at Desert Botanical Garden

Butterfly Exhibit at Desert Botanical Garden

The Marshall Butterfly Pavilion is home to two butterfly exhibits each year–a Monarch display in the fall and a butterfly extravaganza including sixteen different species of butterflies in the spring. We went to the Desert Botanical Garden in Phoenix to see the Chihuly Art exhibition when we were in Phoenix in April, and saw the butterflies while we were there. Double the pleasure!

I had never seen a zebra longwing–no surprise since its range is tropical, found in the southern US, Central America and the northern part of South America.

    You got a really nice photo of him! I can’t remember seeing one of them either. What a pretty creature!
