Inkycircus seems to be working its way its way through the wildlife videos on the BBC website section Planet Earth. Yesterday was the snow leopard hunting, today is the turn of mandarin duck babies jumping out of a tree and learning how to fly. I'm not really a wild life fan but this is funny and cute.
"9 brand new ducklings launch themselves out of a hole in a tree many feet up above the jungle floor, and fall headlong towards a bouncy bed of leaves. But it's not the falling that's the best bit, it's the way they bravely flap their minature "wings" on the way down to try and slow their decent. Priceless. Visit the Planet Earth clips library here, find the Programmes section (it has 87 clips), then use the drop down menu to find Mandarin Duck Dive. I promise you'll be glad you did. "
The fungal time-lapse is pretty cool too.
