#Disneynature #WingsofLife Bluray Combo Pack Review

My husband and I are addicted to nature movies and shows.  We enjoy learning about life, whether it involves humans or the beauty that we are surrounded by.  I was given the opportunity to review Disneynature's Wings of Life which is narrated by Meryl Streep.  For 80 minutes I was captivated by the gorgeous colors that are found naturally.  Every time I saw a flower or a butterfly on my TV screen, I was reminded just how beautiful life is.  It is so easy to take for granted what we have been blessed with, brilliant colors, beautiful scenery and amazing life forces.

I learned so many interesting facts while watching Disneynature's Wings of Life.  Did you know that:

     The orchid is the most cunning of all flowers?  She puts off a perfume to entice bees.  Then, she traps it and only releases the bee when she is finished with it. 
    The hummingbird's wings flap up to 200 times a second!  That's crazy! 
    A cactus can live up to 150 years.
    Bees are able to perceive ultraviolet light.

This is just a few facts that I found fascinating.  I thoroughly enjoyed Wings of Life on Bluray.  I felt like I was right there in the middle of nature watching all of this take place.  The film was crisp and clear and intoxicating.  Meryl did an excellent job explaining what was going on and how much of life is interdependent on other creatures lives.  Make sure you check it out on April 16th. 

Here are some great craft ideas to do with the kiddies.

I can't wait to see the next Disneynature film.  Disneynature is on Facebook and Twitter.
