I never thought I would enjoy a DVD about insects but this was really interesting. Give it a try.

This is a fascinating video about the insects that keep our ecosystems functioning. Some relationships are so complex and surprising that I felt the insect world deserves more respect and admiration. For example, ants are farmers just like us! They herd aphids to the best pastures and protect them from intruders like ladybirds. They were the first shepherds in effect.
The photography is beautiful as well as the music. This is enriching and appeals to all age groups.
