Amazing photography and stunning scenes dominate this series
27 September 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The photographers must have spent two of the three years hiding or camouflaging cameras in the six regions filmed because they got shots that are almost unbelievable -- one such instance is viewing the inside of a European mink den during the birth of 5 babies! It is hard to fathom the hours that must have been spent getting usable wildlife shots. Being able to watch the episodes in high definition certainly added to the beauty of the scenery and wildlife. This is definitely the best documentary I have ever seen.

I know that nature is cruel with the survival of the fittest, and I don't like to see blood and guts, even in living color. The narrator does not shrink from saying that many of the species are endangered and nearly all the populations of wildlife are declining. However, I was relieved that no killing was shown.

There were many species of animals shown of which I had no prior knowledge -- some of them are unique to Russia and some species are making their last stand against encroaching civilization. This series is both educational and entertaining. I am only sorry that there are no more episodes that I can look forward to enjoying.
