ever wondered what it is like to fly like an eagle?


(Video link here.) An eagle fitted with a tiny GoPro Camera by his trainer, takes us along for the ride. Very cool…..

if….it….is…….real?

We came face to face our own jaded, suspicious selves, wondering if certain magic CAN happen.

Our friend Susan Dworski hunted down the its origins. Apparently the remarkable, very viral video is a clip from a film being made for French television, in league with Jacques-Olivier who works with trained, captive birds such as golden eagles, osprey and owls and helps them to adjust to the wild.

He films his birds from paraglider, microlight or helicopter and even “gives them their own cameras” for exceptional images.  What amazing work some folks find for themselves.
