Warren Hatch filmed, edited and narrated this excellent short video. He has a lot of agricultural watering tanks set up in his back yard that are inhabited by numerous species which he filmed through a microscope. It is informative and inspiring for anyone who owns -or would like to own- a microscope. Especially suitable for kids in upper elementary and/or middle school grades.

Very good. Probably not for everyone, but if you're interested in microbes, frogs, insects, etc, this is a very entertaining & interesting watch. Would love to see more from Hatch.
