After Ojo runs in from the kitchen scared of a bee, Bear suggests that they watch a bee at a safe distance in order to find out what the insects do other than sting. In the course of the day, Bear, Ojo, Pip and Pop, and Tutter find that every creature has a place and a purpose. That's just one of the many great things about nature. In the Shadow Segment, Shadow's Western Song is called "Home on the Range" featuring the deer, the antelope, the yak, and a nature guy who accidentally hurt his thumb with a hammer. At the end, the yak tells them we have to play them inside instead.
