More Skiathos Wildlife

The thing that I am most afraid of are moths, moths and butterflies, if they come near me I'm like a woman possessed, lol.  but when I saw this beautiful creature gliding around so elegantly I was memorised, it looked so graceful.  It settled long enough for me to get a couple of half decent photos.  I did have a zoom lens with me which meant i didn't have to get too close, if it had ever come within an inch of me you would have heard me screaming back in the UK !!

If anyone knows what it is please leave a message.

Skiathos Cats

It's been a while since i shared any photos, i hope to put that right over the next week or so.

We spent a week on the Greek Island of Skiathos at the beginning of July, anyone who has been to Greece will know about the many cats that roam around just waiting to be fed.  Goodness know how these poor things survive.

The photo above and below are the same cute kitten, there was a little family living at Kastro, a very remote part of the island.

Above and below, another cute little fella from the same litter at Kastro

This little mother was watching her babies climb and play on the bank opposite.  These were at a monastery, and at least had water to drink, there were food bowls out too, so these were lucky cats!
