Nature visits destinations, in the U.S. and abroad, to bring viewers unique perspectives on the lives and behaviors of a diverse lineup of wildlife.

Utilizing cutting-edge filmmaking technologies, the series illuminates the complexities of the natural world and humans’ relationship to it. Nature: Sex, Lies & Butterflies airs Wednesday, May 26 at 8 p.m. on WXXI-TV. 

Butterflies have been making our planet more interesting and beautiful for more than 50 million years, and today a dazzling array of nearly 20,000 different species inhabit the globe. Nature: Sex, Lies and Butterflies follows the lives of these incredible and important insects from egg to caterpillar to chrysalis to the emergence of the mature winged creature. This vibrant new Nature special explores the astonishing survival techniques of butterflies, including their 360° vision, deceptive camouflage, chemical weaponry, and fantastic flight across continents. Through sophisticated macro-filming, viewers get a rare glimpse beyond the butterflies’ bright colors and fragile beauty as they follow them on one of the greatest migrations on Earth. Narrated by Paul Giamatti.
