3 Mind-Blowing Time-lapse Nature Documentaries

My passion for nature runs deep, I have been observing everything that she has to offer, from a caterpillar to a butterfly, a flower to a fruit, sunset to sunrise all of it fascinates me.

But when you combine hours of watching a time-lapse video with music to match the repetitive motion of a caterpillar chewing a leaf or flowers opening up, it takes the level of admiration to unimaginable heights.
Today, I shall share some of these videos that have brought about profound insights into the behavior of our living planet Earth.

microcosmos slow loveThe First One is Microcosmos

Microcosmos (original title Microcosmos: Le peuple de l’herbe — Microcosmos: The grass people) is a 1996 documentary film by Claude Nuridsany and Marie Pérennou and produced by Jacques Perrin. This film is primarily a record of detailed insect interactions set to the music of Bruno Coulais.

The second one I recommend is Winged Migration

Winged Migration (French: Le Peuple Migrateur, also known as The Travelling Birds in some UK releases, or The Travelling Birds: An adventure in flight in Australia), is a 2001 documentary film directed by Jacques Cluzaud, Michel Debats and Jacques Perrin, showcasing the immense journeys routinely made by birds during their migrations.

The third and perhaps the most common is Planet Earth. A 2006 television series produced by the BBC Natural History Unit. Five years in the making, it was the most expensive nature documentary series ever commissioned by the BBC, and also the first to be filmed in high definition.

The series was co-produced by the Discovery Channel and NHK in association with the CBC, and was described by its makers as “the definitive look at the diversity of our planet”.

What a way to celebrate the beauty of our planet, if you’ve come across any other cool nature time-lapse videos like these do give a shout out.

Funny how these are identified as “3 Mind-Blowing Time-lapse Nature Documentaries” when only the Planet Earth trailer shows any time-lapse and then only a few seconds. Nonetheless all contain outstanding nature videography.
