Bug Day at UC Botanical Garden

Yesterday, Andy and I participated in Bug Day at the UC Botanical Garden. What fun! Andy put together many beautiful displays. He included Cabbage Whites, Anise Swallowtails, Pipevine Swallowtails, Monarchs, etc. We had a big picnic table in the shade (although it did get sunny around noon). Many people came to see the live specimens, both children and adults. Some people had raised several species before, some knew almost nothing about butterflies. Several other educational tables were spread around the garden: bees, compost, and aquatic insects, to name a few. Also, some of the docents did crafts with the kids: fuzzy spiders, bee houses, butterfly wands. The weather was perfect! What a great way to spend father's day!
