Fall Break and Desert Botanical Garden

The granddaughters are on Fall break.  Today DH and I took them to the Desert Botanical Garden to see the Monarch Butterful Exhibit.
The girls took the photos below in the Butterfly Pavilion.  I'm not sure which is a male and which is a female but one of the workers explained to the girls how to tell the difference.  Thegirls went around explaining which ones were male and female.  I need them to identify the photos.  

This photo was taken at the entrance to the gardens.  Shown in the background are the Desert Towers by Chihuly.  Chihuly had an exhibit at the gardens a few years ago and these were purchased by the garden and remain on display at the entrance. 
The graden just open a new exhibit called Whispers of a New World  by Carolina Escobar inside the garden.  It features beautiful organic sculptures.  I'll have pics tomorrow of some of the sculptures.

Beautiful! Love the butterflies. We have a Chihuly exhibit at our Botanical Garden, but each weekend that we've planned on going the weather has been bad. Looks like a fun day.
