Spanish photographer David de los Santos Gil has once again captured the beauty of nature on film.

Last year, Gil compiled 5,000 images of blooming flowers for the first timelapse video in a series that received recognition from National Geographic, among others.

Now the photographer has released "Flowers Opening Timelapse II," for which he took nearly 40,000 images. (He shot 50,000 photos in 1 to 10 minute intervals for the first video, he says on his blog.)

The second video again features a score composed by Roger Subirana, Gil says on his blog.

Some of the flowers seen in the video are hibiscus, cactus, iris and almond blossom, though there are many more as well.
