Event Photography: Butterfly Pavilion

If you’re into fluttering insects, the Desert Botanical Garden’s Butterfly Pavilion is the place to be. Located in southeast Phoenix, the Pavilion is quite the draw for photographers, including my friend and mentor, Judy Vorfeld:

Judy and I visited the Butterfly Pavilion this past Saturday.

You can catch the Butterfly Pavilion exhibit between March 1 and May 11. It’s a guaranteed good time for humans and fluttery things…
