Customers Who Bought This Item Also Bought

The narration is not well written in my view and is not helped by a somewhat pompous presentation. The credits are another oddity: so speedy they cannot be read without frequently using the pause button. There is no point at all to offer data like this.
This a deeply disappointing release. So beautifully photgraphed but so stupidly put together. I strongly suggest renting or watch it on your local NG channel before buying. If you can stomach this hodge podge of wild life cocktail sticks then go for it.
I highly recommend this well made, excellently filmed documentary.
Bottom line, this is a must-own for any nature lover.
This behind the scenes video was a brilliant and visceral look into the lives of the crew taking the footage, and contains many very candid moments that drive home the reality of what they are trying to do. As a Christian I know that many other Christians may not appreciate the bleeped out profanity often caught on camera, but these are real people facing dangerous situations. These people have emotions and are being pushed past the breaking point in many cases. Most of us cannot imagine the fear of not being able to find our way back home, the aggravation of getting repeatedly stuck in a war-torn land that no one knows how to navigate, or the frustration of waiting all day every day for almost a month to shoot a single hunting sequence.
These expeditions are very expensive, and the photographers risk both their lives and reputations on each excursion. What happens if they do not get the shots? How will they handle unforeseen circumstances that threaten to block their efforts? These are legitimate questions that we often overlook. These folks do not pick their shots from a catalog.Read more ›

Annoyingly disjointed. It's as if ten programs were spliced together at random; each bit only a few minutes in length. Particularly painful prose. Read morePublished 6 months ago by capnjohn
