Ever wondered how the world looks like from an eagle's point of view? One eagle, strapped with a GoPro camera by a YouTube user Srachi, captured the scenic surroundings of the Chamonix hillsides of eastern France to give us a glimpse of the soaring glide of these majestic predators.

The video, which at the time of writing had been viewed more than 1.5 million times since being uploaded on September 16, is a one-minute clip of the eagle flying through the mountainsides with a GoPro camera attached to its back. The surrounding terrain shows a steep drop into a ravine, while luscious green space covers the expansive valley.

While some may wonder how the owner of the GoPro camera managed to retrieve the footage of the eagle's point of view, the eagle is presumably trained so as to return to a specific location for the clip to eventually be uploaded.
