It seems that unhatched egg cameras may be the best way to get 'an in' with nature and a clique-like penguin colony. Or at least that was the case with this viral video blowing up of a prank run by a team of researchers and video crew members for a BBC program at a penguin colony.

Using a striated caracara (the scavenger of the falcon family) as prey for the prank, the team hooked the falcon by using an egg camera -- camouflaged as a rockhopper penguin egg. The falcon falls for it and snatches his egg and flies off capturing stunning aerial views of a penguin colony below.

The BBC program will be getting attention, not for its actual footage but for being the program behind the first video to be filmed by a bird.
