No, this is not an excerpt of a CGI scene from The Hobbit movie. Nor does the bird look quite like the greatest Eagle who ever lived in the annals of human mythology.

Better still – this is a clip from a real video camera mounted on the back of a real eagle, almost literally giving us the bird’s eye view of the Alpine landscape of the Mer De Glace area of Chamonix, France.

Pretty damn cool, eh?
