Felicia Flash wildlife photographer, and her sidekick Karma, the elephant, are back from another globe trotting journey and are ready to relax in their OWN backyard. As usual, adventure is never far away from this wacky duo. A peaceful nap under the shade tree takes Felicia into an amazing ecosystem under her lawn chair. We are talking bugs. BIG BUGS... as she shrinks to bug size...or our stage grows to make the audience bug size.... Green Darner Dragon Flies, earth worms, tree frogs, slugs and more.

Discover the critters in your own backyard, what it takes to create a backyard sanctuary and why it is so important to help out.
