Is there anything better than snuggling up to watch a nature documentary? Sweeping landscapes, wild animals and soothing voiceovers make for perfect escapism.
If you've already binge-watched all the David Attenborough series out there, then fret not, because a new wildlife programme hits Netflix on 7th August - and it looks like the streaming service's cutest nature series yet.
Tiny Creatures, as you may have guess from the title, focuses its attention on the little things in life.
You can watch the full trailer here:
That means moving away from the likes of the Big Five (lions, leopards, rhinos, elephants, and buffalo) to focus on creatures that haven't always had their fair share of the limelight.
We're talking about the life and times of the tiniest critters to roam the globe, ranging from tiny rodents to birds, insects and reptiles.
Directed by Planet Earth II cinematographer Jonathan Jones and is narrated by Luke Cage star Mike Colter, the series offers crisp, breath-taking footage of smalls beasts in both their natural habitats and domestic settings.
We realise that a clip of a fluffy duckling in a bath may not have the knock-you-sideways factor of a great white shark leaping from the ocean - but trust us, once you've witnessed the supreme quality of the footage, you'll want to see more.
Along the way, you'll get a vivid glimpse into the lives of ants, beetles, caterpillars, butterflies, and moths, along with birds including raptors and corvids.
Desert-dwelling rodents and reptiles including snakes and chameleons also take centre stage.
As the trailer narrates: "Imagine a world where the most incredible stories go unnoticed. A vibrant, colourful place, bursting at the seams with some very unusual characters. Animals that prowl in the shadows."
The voiceover continues: "Experience the hidden world, where bigger isn't always better. To make it when you're this small, you have to take chances.
"There will always be new challenges in this forever changing landscape. Welcome to the magical world of tiny creatures."
Tiny Creatures comes to Netflix 7th August.
