The natural world is full of colours that we tend to take for granted. This series explores why animals are so colourful. David Attenborough travels from the rainforests of Costa Rica to the snowclad Scottish Highlands to reveal the extraordinary ways that animals use colour. New camera technologies – some developed specially for this series – allow us, for the first time, to see the world as animals do, revealing colours and patterns usually invisible to our eyes. From the bold and brilliant, to the deceptive and bizarre, David Attenborough's Life in Colour – Episode 2 is a visual feast that will surprise, enchant and dazzle the senses.
Key stories include:
- Great Barrier Reef fish
