Throughout the summer (2015) I kept my eyes open for butterflies and tried my best to get as much footage as I could. I’m pretty happy with some of the close up shots that I got. Okay.. so one of the butterflies in the video was from a couple years ago, but I think it fits well with the other flutterbyes.

I’m not sure what kind of butterflies they are, I did some quick google searches to guess at what they may be. Correct me if I’m wrong 😀

Here are some still frames of the butterflies:

This is an interesting thing which I chose to draw, having very little experience in drawing insects.

Now… I drew this not being entirely sure of what I was drawing. To me, it looks like this is a fuzzy butterfly who is grooming its face with its front legs. BUT it also looks like it has strange horns sticking out from beside its mouth.

Here is my reference picture that I used, which I took a couple years ago when the butterfly landed conveniently in front of me and my daughter on a pear tree.

If anyone knows what kind of butterfly this is, I would enjoy hearing from you 😀

Thanks to the wonder of technology I’ve been learning to crochet!

At least I can try to crochet when Kyoko ALLOWS me.

Its against the law to move a sleeping cat.

Even more thanks to the many helpful people online who uploaded tutorials and most of all to a very nice blogger who gave me permission to use her kitten pattern ! You can make your own, or buy mine from my Etsy shop
