Wings of Life

"And Chip Taylor, our monarch butterfly expert, he replied, 'Nothing lasts forever. Everything in the universe wears out.'

And that blew my mind. Because I realized that Nature had invented reproduction as a mechanism for life to move forward, as a life force that passes right through us and makes us a link in the evolution of life. Rarely seen by the naked eye, this intersection between the animal world and the plant world is truly a magic moment. It's the mystical moment where life regenerates itself, over and over again.

So here is some nectar from my film. I hope you'll drink, tweet and plant some seeds to pollinate a friendly garden. And always take time to smell the flowers, and let it fill you with beauty, and rediscover that sense of wonder. Here are some images from the film."  -- Louie Schwartzberg, Filmmaker
