Watch a Golden Eagle soar in super slow-motion

(CBS News) There's this amazing group who occasionally emails to ask if I'm interested in featuring their latest work. Let's see... am I interested in highlighting a Golden Eagle in super slow-motion? Uh, yes, please! (And keep them coming!) So watch as a bird of prey soars very, very slowly in the fascinating video above. And this is definitely best seen in high-definition if possible.

Wow, those talons are terrifying! Amiright? The up-close-and-personal piece with a Golden Eagle was created by Earth Unpluggedwho mark their fifth appearance on The Feed, and who write about their latest enlightening work with the wild:

How do feathers work? Sam and Si take one of the biggest birds of prey, the golden eagle, and see just how it carries its massive frame through the air.

And considering our last post, we are just overflowing with educational knowledge today! A big triple-rainbow salute (also their fifth) goes out to Earth Unplugged from us here at The Feed for another mesmerizing look into the animal kingdom!
