Yes, that was the first image of the documentary, as you can see from the 00.01 time. It could have been a long-lost greenygrey world for all I could decipher. And I wasn’t that far off. It was a dragonfly’s eye in an insect greenygrey world; known as a pond by humans.
It would soon metamorphise into a nice bright pretty colourful dragonfly, as Greenygreys can shapeshift; but dragonflies only do it once in their short lives; leaving its greenygrey past (as seen in the image) in the background, and fly out above the plants and water into the sun.
It was a promising start to Wonders of Life, and nice to see Brian did a great grass and shirt greenygrey photo shoot for the series cover shot.
I’d have preferred a wolf pup of course.
