    Part of The Four Seasons series, this film's focus is winter. A time of migration and hibernation, winter also sets the blood racing, the nip of the wind quickening our every move. Ducks wing their way south as skiers race down slopes. Deer forage in a thicket as woodpeckers move through the treetops. The constantly recurring drama of nature has been captured in this spectacular film. Here is the story of natural selection and the survival of the fittest, of predator and prey. Yet winter is also a season of hope as the days lengthen and the sun returns. Soon there will be a new beginning. The river otter starts counting in February. The great horned owl and its young greet the new season. Life steps up its pace everywhere, and the seasons have come full cycle.
