Peek Inside the Strange, Secret World of Bugs

England’s New Forest holds some of the most remarkable creatures, but you might have to look under a rock to find them. Beetles, ants, and dragonflies abound in this stunning short from filmmaker Oliver Mueller. He shot these incredible insects with custom-built equipment and used slow-motion as well as time-lapse techniques to capture them in action.

The Short Film Showcase spotlights exceptional short videos created by filmmakers from around the world and selected by National Geographic editors. We look for work that affirms National Geographic's belief in the power of science, exploration, and storytelling to change the world. The filmmakers created the content presented, and the opinions expressed are their own, not those of National Geographic Partners.
