Ever wonder what it would be like to fly like an eagle? You can stop wondering and start watching here.
A video recorded from a GoPro camera strapped to an eagle was released on YouTube this week, giving viewers a literal bird's-eye perspective of a flight over the Mer de Glace, a glacier located in the Chamonix Valley in France.
The eagle is seen flying around the valley, offering a breathtaking view. The camera appears to not be a hindrance for the bird as it continues its flight in the brief video.
Since GoPro's introduction in 2004, users have been finding more creative ways to use the rugged high-definition video camera in the sky, on the ground, and even at sea. This video is a great example how the camera has been used to capture a perspective that would be difficult to do with traditional camera equipment.
