Butterflies have been flying around our planet for more than 50 million years, and today around 20,000 different species inhabit the globe. Nature: Sex, Lies and Butterflies follows their lives from egg to caterpillar to chrysalis to the emergence of the full-blown, winged creature. Explore their astonishing survival techniques, including 360° vision, deceptive camouflage, chemical weaponry and fantastic flight. Through sophisticated macro-filming, look beyond the butterflies’ bright colors and fragile beauty to follow them on one of the greatest migrations on earth.
