Glass frog

Watching Planet Earth II in 4k but one segment blew me away .....glass frogs versus wasps.



Incredible adaptations ...the back of the male frog mimics the look of the eggs and the wasps are attracted to it.
He plays ninja dad.

In addition not shown here is the older tadpoles still in eggs can sense an attack by the wasps and hatch early and drop into the water.

Dad stays near the youngest to nail the wasps with those long agile legs. Ain't natur wonnerful :drunk:

That's a National Geo clip ...the better view is Planet Earth II on Netflix in Canada.
4k and David A....stunning.

I honestly have no idea how they filmed some of the episodes. :what:

On BBC they would have a segment after the show telling you how they filmed it. Is this missing from Netflix?

The last few years the BBC have been making their programs only 50 mins instead of an hour. I think it's because other channels they sell to show adverts. The BBC don't. So to fill up the hour slot they started putting 'making of's at the end.
