Young science and nature enthusiasts are treated to a front-row seat to the everyday drama and excitement of the ecosystem of a typical North American pond. Five vignettes, each at a different time of day or night, portray dramatic scenes of nature's interaction. At daybreak a dragonfly makes a meal out of the mosquitoes and mayflies that hover over the water; at mid-morning, mallard ducklings narrowly escape becoming brunch for a snapping turtle. Noontime brings a marsh hawk looking for a woodchuck or two, while at dusk a human hunter catches a largemouth bass with rod and reel. The night shift includes a mother opossum crunching a tiger beetle to obtain the energy she needs to carry her babies around. A day at Butternut Hollow is the perfect way to watch the food chain in action, and nature at its well-balanced best.
