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:
