If you only have six weeks of a seventeen year life to live above ground, there’s no better way to go out than on a high note — or at least a very, very loud one.

Orr’s goal is to make a full-length picture from the 200 hours of footage he gathered, and he’s started a Kickstarter page to let the wings of his project unfurl.
We have to say, it isn’t often a nature film can bring us to tears, but this one hit the mark.
