What self-respecting person with access to an eagle and a GoPro camera wouldn't attempt to capture this amazing footage? We've all seen David Attenborough and National Geographic specials, so we've seen what microcopters and camera traps can capture when you have hundreds of thousands of dollars to invest, but this video shows the power of a relatively cheap camera, a mount, and a little creativity. It was shot in the mountainous region of Chamonix in France but we don't know who the mounted the camera or how they know the eagle. You will definitely want to watch this fullscreen at 720p a few times (For added effect, also play the Seal rendition of "Fly Like An Eagle" at a high volume).
