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:

Two “Pearl Crescent” Butterflies … ahem!

We were out by the creek chasing water skippers when all of a sudden Lisa burst into tree climbing mode!

She was up in the blink of an eye, bright eyed and bushy tailed she reached the highest part of the tree before my camera powered on.

You can hear how much the local birds didn’t like this feat of strength.

Here are the water skippers, which we did not catch. They are like turbo rockets on the surface of the water.

Somehow I don’t think the squirrel will accept her into the family…cat squirrel

In this video Lisa meets another one of the neighborhood cats whom I have already met several times with Kyoko.
I’m very happy that I have enough time to be able to accompany my cats outdoors where they can be free and meet other cats like themselves. I feel like if i wasn’t there to be a mediator that some of these meetings may not go quite as peacefully.

Its great that pretty much all of the cats we have met are tolerant if not friendly to our cats.
Lisa wasn’t too comfortable with this new kitty’s scent so she decided to climb a tree instead of sticking around.

Personally, I think she was showing off her skills to impress everybody.
