When seeing bees, most people see a vicious, ruthless monster that exists for no reason but to sting people, a monster whose sole purpose in life is to cause pain.

When seeing bees, most people see a vicious, ruthless monster that exists for no reason but to sting people, a monster whose sole purpose in life is to cause pain. They don’t see what’s really there. Really, when you see a bee, you are seeing a graceful, helpful insect without which the human race might not survive.

One in every three bites you take depends on a bee, bird, bat, or butterfly. “Wings of Life,” Disney Nature’s newest movie, is about the importance of pollinators and flowers in the world. It also educates about the habits of these fascinating creatures. For example, before watching this movie, I had no idea that hummingbirds are extremely territorial.

“Wings of Life” also has amazing footage. Cameras found their ways into beehives, flowers. They also captured nighttime footage of bats eating and unknowingly pollinating cactus flowers. Swarms of billions of butterflies are shown, all gathering in a small clearing in the Mexican mountains.

I would recommend this movie to anyone and everyone who is looking to see an intriguing film about nature, but especially animal and insect lovers. There is nothing inappropriate and nothing scary. It is almost impossible to turn off the TV not stunned by the beauty of this wonderful movie!
