Whilst searching for butterflies in the Valais region and surrounding areas of South West Switzerland in June and July of 2011, the author encountered some other interesting mountain wildlife which he captured on film. This short, 50-minute film is the author's personal account of the scenery, flowers, insects, amphibians, birds and mammals he encountered.

The documentary begins at an altitude of approximately 400 metres along the Rhone flood plain and its tributaries. The viewer ascends through wooded uplands towards the tree line along gushing mountain streams before emerging from the trees into wonderful flower filled alpine meadows. Finally, the viewer heads up to the snow line passing through lush pastures into craggy uplands at altitudes in excess of 2500 metres.

This film includes short clips of the butterflies found in Searching for Butterflies in South West Switzerland plus other insects and mountain specialties such as the Marmot and Chamois plus Alpine Chough, Alpine Accentor, Snowfinch and Wallcreeper all in fantastic mountain scenery.

Please note that some scenery clips are duplicated from Searching for Butterflies in South West Switzerland.

This production was filmed in broadcast quality digital format. The footage has been captured onto a single DVD showing approximately 50 minutes of high quality uncompressed digital video with complete menu accessed using your DVD players remote.
