10 years after the original series, Planet Earth II has been released, mesmerising viewers with its extraordinary landscape views and detailed insights into animal life. Narrated by legendary broadcaster and famous naturalist Sir David Attenborough, it is expected to garner as much acclaim as its original, which was five years in the making. Below are eight different photographs taken from the Islands, Deserts, Jungles and Mountains categories.

Beautiful photos. Looking forward for more of your work
Thanks. I’ve always had a big interest in wildlife photography. You’re more than welcome to stay and have a look around.
The bat is stunning, I love the movement of the sand grouse and oryx, great capture! Thanks for sharing, Alex.
It’s a brilliant photo. Brilliantly timed and well-framed. And two animals you don’t see too often.
Stunning! Thanks Alex, for the preview!
Always happy to share them. I should pretend I took them myself on my travels haha.
You should! 😀
Nature is so incredible and awe-inspiring. Always so much to see.
Beautiful! I am loving this series.
It’s exceptional isn’t it? I need to see the Wildlife Photographer of the Year exhibition too.
