If we want people to care about anything they have to be able to see and feel the beauty of a thing first.
Then they will believe in it's value.
Pollinators of all kinds are in trouble worldwide due to a variety of factors introduced by man,
This stunning footage is how I remember much of my childhood sticking my nose up close to see what bugs really did "down there".
I hope others will see the grace and intelligence of creation in this film and embrace it as part of their world.
To study nature is to study ourselves and realize our part within it.

That was amazing. The one thing that always gets to me is the caterpillar. How it can basically go through an evolution of sorts. It gains the ability
of flight after a long period of sleep. Wish I could eat a ton, sleep for a few years and wake up looking beautiful, and with wings
That was absolutely stunning, thank you so much, I especially loved the humming birds, the bee's and the little bats
When I was young we would visit my grandparents in Arkansas and my grandmother had a wonderful flower garden that was always abuzz with humming birds,
where I am now I seldom ever see then and have been wishing I could successfully draw their interest near so I can see them again but have been
unsuccessful so far. I have always loved the chubby little bee's pollinating the flowers and producing honey with I so love. Very beautiful

If you have Netflix, you can also see it there, with the Photographer who made this incredible video.
He's been at this kind of photgraphy for about 30 years I think?
Anyway...in Netflix, search TedTalks...and Beasts, bugs, and WIld....something.......it's video number 9.
