Please note

Sorry, we don't have images or video for this item.

An intimate view of the miniature cosmos that seethes in a ferment of beauty and savagery behind the tall reeds and in the quiet waters of the marsh. We see how strange insects, small amphibious creatures and birds that prefer waters haunts, devour and are devoured, according to nature’s stern decree of balance and survival of the fittest.
