    Part of The Four Seasons series, this quietly beautiful film shows natrue at her zenith of color and life. Everything is in full bloom--plants, insects, animals--and all are performing their individual and interdependent roles in nature's great life cycle. But all is not ideal as it seems. Lake Erie looks magnificient at first, but closer inspection shows it is near death, poisoned by pollution. Happily, there is also evidencethat humankind is beginning to halt some of the damage to the environment. We learn about the comeback of the buffalo, the introduction of the ibex to North America, and preventive measures taken to save our waters, woods, fields and hills.
