The marvelous glass work of Dale Chihuly has been on display at the Desert Botanical Garden in Phoenix since last November. I have taken four GigaPans of some of the pieces before this temporary installation goes back on the road at the end of May. :-( "Red Reeds" and "Black Saguaros" are in the background on the left.

See if you can find the dove and a flying bumble-bee. Also look for this GigaPanner's reflections in some of the floats. (I am wearing a floppy hat.)
