I’ve written before about how much I love the filmmaking of nature documentarian David Attenborough.
If you need convincing, just watch this clip from his show on Australian lyre birds, who can mimic the sound of just about anything, from other birds’ calls to car alarms to chainsaws. Then, rent the whole show on Netflix.
The clip is a classic Attenborough shot — him hiding behind the animal he’s discussing, whispering in reverent tones, as the camera subtly highlights the physical beauty of the animal.
