"Throughout history, butterflies have fascinated artists and philosophers, scientists and schoolchildren with their profound mystery and beauty. In Metamorphosis you will explore their remarkable world as few ever have before. Spectacular photography, computer animation and magnetic resonance imaging open once hidden doors to every stage of a butterfly's life cycle--from an egg the size of a pinhead to a magnificent flying insect. It is a transformation so incredible biologists have called it "butterfly magic." The butterfly's superbly engineered body is magnified hundreds of times to reveal compound eyes made of thousands of individual lenses, wings covered with microscopic solar panels, and navigational systems that unerringly guide Monarch butterflies on their annual migration from Canada to Mexico. How did these extraordinary creatures come into being? Are they the products of a blind, undirected process? Or were they designed for a purpose by an intelligence? Filmed in the lush rainforests of Ecuador, Mexico's Transvolcanic Mountains, and leading research centers Metamorphosis is an unforgettable documentary filled with the joys of discovery and wonder"--Container.

Nice imagery but narration/dialog are aimed low. Many comments/insights seem mostly 'dramatically driven' rather than objective information.
Not equal to BBC type/style nature documentaries.
