Eyewitness Insect DVD
Outstanding in both presentation and content, this award-winning program features an electronically generated 3-D “virtual museum” where live-action photography creates the sensation of being inside the picture. Coverage is balanced by live-action footage shot in natural environments.
Insect zooms in on a world of creatures that are industrious, sociable, and environmentally useful, but that are often avoided or ignored. Here, you can safely examine the wonders of insects through macrophotography and startling 3-D graphics that reveal the true importance of these amazing life forms.
Superb color photographs give the viewer a unique insight into the variety and complexity of insects, their structure, life cycles and behavior. See a queen wasp building her nest, a caterpillar devouring a leaf, a cockchafer beetle taking off, two stag beetles fighting over a mate, and a damselfly nymph emerging as an adult. Learn why bees make honey, how to identify insects, why leafcutter ants build underground nests, how diving beetles live and breathe in water, and how mosquitoes spread disease. Discover how a wasp’s compound eyes work, which insects have ears on their knees, how wasp grubs feed on living caterpillars, and how a butterfly can smell with its wings.
Narrated by Martin Sheen, the program explains physical characteristics, evolution, habits, and habitats of insects along with the role these amazing creatures have played in mythology, legend, superstition, and the arts. Approximately 35 minutes.
“Eyewitness… is something for the whole family to watch. And watch again.” – USA Today
