Like Riding Falkor: First Person POV Of An Eagle Diving From the Eiffel Tower At 111-MPH

PROTIP: Turn your volume down.

This is a video taken with a mini Sony Action Cam strapped to the back of a white-tail eagle, who dives off the top of the Eiffel Tower and bombs towards its handler's arm in the Trocadéro Gardens at 111-MPH. Man, eagle vision is no joke. I wish I had eyes that good. I have terrible vision though. Except - EXCEPT - visions of the future. I have 20/20 vision when it comes to seeing the future. "Then what's the rest of your life look like?" Trudging through waist-deep shit until I pass out and drown in it by 2018.

Keep going for the video, and remember what I said about the volume.

Thanks to Simon, who wants to see an eagle with a video camera attached dive-bomb a mouse from a mile away. Mickey?!

    Beautiful. I find that the things I admire most are simple. God's creation.

    Yes, 1.3 billions years of minute changes in each generation of bacteria to dinosaur to birds for a full biological creature capable of flight and a literal hawk eye vision at immense speed is "simple". God component may be optional.

    Everyone knows God is code word for "normal evolution plus time". Duh.
