The Garden Canvas

The Meadowlark Botanical Gardens were quite a treat for my humble little point-and-shoot. I found this place to be perfectly charming with its uncountably many shades of green, formidable expanse, curious decor and artwork, and eclectic collection of visitors (including flyers, swimmer, crawlers, and of course walkers)! Without further ado, here are some captures.
The caterpillar and the ladybug share arboreal real estate
Turtles and Canadian geese amicably cohabit in the lake 
More turtles and a goose swim over a dense layer of water plants
Eastern Tiger Swallowtail butterfly: This one here with blue spots near the lower tip of its wings is a female.
The swallowtail couple: Male (all yellow) to the left and female (yellow with blue spots) to the right
Ornamental tin ant
Gorgeous wire sculpture of a dragonfly overlooks the scenic pond with a bridge
Pot-man and pot-baby relaxing next to Tree-face
Gazebo in the pond
Many shades of green
The gently perturbed lake water mirrors the trees and the sky
Care for a cuppa tea?
