DVD Review: Earth Flight

A Bird’s eye view of birds on the wing

Rating: 5 out of 5

What a stunning video. Instead of the usual shots of birds taken from the ground, these photos are taken alongside the birds as if one were flying adjacent to them in the flock. Many of them are taken of migrations with shots of birds flying over well-known features such as the Grand Canyon or the Statue of Liberty.

In each of the three episodes Earth Flight deals with birds from a different continent. So in the case of South Africa, my home country, the one portion is of Cape Gannet’s diving through a school of dolphins to catch pilchards, an epipelagic fish. This section shows gannets at wing height, from above & beneath the water. All are stunning.

Experience birds as one has never experienced them before. Earth Flight certainly set a new benchmark in wildlife photography. I would also recommend purchasing it in Blu-ray to appreciate the excellent quality of the cinematography.
