The circle of life has never been more beautifully illustrated than in the DisneyNature documentary "Wings Of Life." Masterfully photographed and richly visual in stunning high-definition, the film details more than the simple tale of the smallest birds and bees, and reveals the role flowers and plant life plays in the preservation of our ecosystem.

Narrated by Academy Award winner Meryl Streep, "Wings Of Life" captures little-seen, seldom-noticed nature and takes the viewer into the secret realm of floral pollination. Flowers and plant life play a crucial part in the survival of all of Earth’s species. Through very deliberate and orchestrated means they prepare to pollinate on the wings of butterflies, bees, bats and birds and guarantee that plants continue to thrive.

Everything plays a part in this microcosm’s symphony. Each facet of nature’s melody is meant to protect and serve one another in a means of preservation. This is a once in a lifetime opportunity to experience the splendor of life in motion. Audiences are introduced to the many wonders of pollen and how it contributes beyond its small means to the food we eat, the air we breathe and the overall health of the planet.

"Wings Of Life" also lends some insight into how science works to reproduce nature’s effective steps at pollination. Expertly photographed and skillfully enhanced with CGI modeling to further illustrate its narrative, "Wings Of Life" soars.
