The Secret World of Gardens II
It's an extraordinary world of death and beauty - and it's as close as our backyards. This unique nature series will forever change the way we see our gardens. Time-lapse photography and macro-lenses uncover the mysterious world that's hidden in a common garden. With a shift in perspective, grass becomes a towering forest, molehills become mountains, and beetles are armoured, devouring giants. From bloodthirsty predators to the exotic world of blossoms, this series gives voice to the thousands of rarely-noticed creatures that live alongside us every day.
There are thousands of different kinds of ants in the average garden, and each one plays a vital role in keeping the ecosystem running smoothly.
The majority of bees are actually loners. These independent creatures endlessly toil away pollinating plants before curling up in a leaf at night for a much-needed rest.
