How do series like Planet Earth capture footage of things like the inside of ant hills, or sharks feeding off of a dead whale?

Partially I’m wondering the physical aspect of how they fit in these places or get close enough to dangerous situations to film them; and partially I’m wondering how they seem to be in the right place at the right time to catch things like a dead whale sinking down into the ocean?

What are the odds they’d be there to capture that and how much time do they spend waiting for these types of things?

I always think of [this](https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=T20vkGZxULo) video. In regards to the part of your question about how they film the sharks eating the whale carcass; they drug the carcass out to sea after it washed up on a beach and a photographer actually climbed on top of it and filmed while the sharks feasted on it.
