Magic Moments

Nature is full of surprises, but all too often they evade our perception. Amazing animal behaviour takes place secretly or happens so quickly that we hardly notice it. Christian Baumeister's film reveals what remains hidden to the human eye. State-of-the-art camera technology, impressive super slow motion and amazing time lapses magically stage kingfishers, brown hares, bats and co. in extraordinary moments. A feast for the senses!
