Before watching the Disneynature Wings of Life I thought the movie was about butterflies. However, while watching the movie I realized it is called “Wings of life” because it outlines the importance of pollinators such as beetles, insects, bees, hummingbirds and bats that carry the pollen grains to other plants, so the plants can reproduce. I recommend this heartwarming movie for the whole family, as it points out the importance of flowers. This DVD and Blu-ray combo will be available on April 16th.
I also read the book Rainforest by Thomas Marent, which is filled with beautiful close-up photographs of the rare beauties found in the exciting, but dangerous tropical rainforests. The pictures are amazing, which shows us the uniqueness and the beautiful details found in nature if we just stop to look at it.

Today is Learn About Butterflies Day. I am glad that we had a wonderful opportunity to learn about Butterflies at the Niagara Parks Butterfly Conservatory (Niagara Falls) a couple of years ago. We liked the beautiful feeling of being surrounded by the colourful butterflies. We also enjoyed standing still and opening our palms for the butterflies to come land on us.
