wonderful piece of work for nature lovers
28 January 1999 | by (Dallas, USA) – See all my reviews

It is a wonderful immersion in a very lively nature. The music and the images are complementary to each other. The quality of the images is impressive. You will see animals and environments from any corner of the world and will be impressed by the diversity of them.
