Slow-Motion Eagle-Owl Landing: Remarkable Video Shows Animal In Flight
But wild animals are especially awesome.
According to the video's description on YouTube, the footage is taken at 1,000 frames per second using a Photron SA2 HD camera.
Although the YouTube user only describes the animal as an "eagleowl," the Oregon Zoo says that Eurasian Eagle Owls "are large owls with prominent ear tufts that are usually not raised upright. Because of this, their feather tufts probably help them more with communication and recognition than camouflage."
