“Don’t mess with Mother.” That’s the title of Apple’s newest Shot on iPhone film, which features a stunning collection of clips celebrating nature from around the world.

Check out the weird and wonderful wildlife and spectacular scenery — all filmed on an iPhone.

There’s no better way to advertise the capabilities of an iPhone’s camera than by showcasing some of the most amazing shots it has taken. That’s what the Shot on iPhone campaign is all about.

Its latest entry is a video created by Camp4 Collective, a group of directors who shoot some of the most most beautiful shot films you’ll ever see.

Don’t mess with Mother

“Don’t mess with Mother” is just over a minute in length. But it’s packed with glorious animals and jaw-dropping scenery from all over the globe.

You’ll see elephants, zebras, rattle snakes, and seals. As well as snowy mountains, sandy deserts, and searing volcanoes — all synced to the song Last Rites by Megadeth.

The new video comes just days after Apple posted another Shot on iPhone film to its YouTube channel.

The Reef, Maldives” is an eight-minute video that follows The Maldives Whale Shark Research Programme (MWSRP), a charity dedicated to collecting data on the largest fish in the ocean.
