Bad Bugs

10 year old Bryn made a claymation movie about the importance of using "natural solutions for your bug problems" - something she's passionate about. The idea came after one of her "grub hunting" sessions (she loves gathering grubs for the birds and lizards).

Bryn loves the environment and all creatures, but also makes a point to clarify that "My movie is not violent... it's just the circle of life."
