Red Reeds and Bird Reach for the Sky

Chihuly's Red Reeds are reaching for the sky and then a bird flies straight up to complete the photo.  

You can see Saguaro cactus laden with fruit and flowers on top next to the red glass works of art. The bats come at night to pollinate the flowers on top of the Saguaros.

Chihuly's glass art exhibition at the Desert Botanical Gardens is now over, but I will have photos to share for the foreseeable future.

Amazing. I was trying to imagine what those red things were and what produces them. The bird was an added mystery. Then I read the post and understand. Nice picture.

Great capture. I love watching the birds peeking out of the holes in the side of the saguaros but haven't been satisied with any of my photos of them yet.

Amazing what a little wee bird and a dash of red will do to a photograph.

Great photo Julie. I was in Tacoma on Tuesday morning and happened to go into the old Union Station (which is now the Federal Courthouse). There was a whole row of the red glass reeds on display in the front windows and more Chihuly throughout the building. Of course it is only one block from Chihuly's museum.
