A slow-motion video of an eagle-owl shows the second by second process of a landing by the majestic bird.

Though the landing would have only taken seconds in real life, the high quality camera allowed the camera-person to spread the process out over the course of a minute.

Because the camera, a Photron SA2 high definition camera, captures 1,000 frames per second, intricate details that would never be visible to the naked eye are startlingly clear.

At several points, you can even see the flapping of individual feathers on the bird's massive wings.

The animal in question is thought to be a Eurasian Eagle Owl, which is slightly smaller than a Golden Eagle and bigger than a Snowy Owl.

An average Eagle Owl has a wingspan between 160 and 188 centimeters (between 5 and 6 feet). Their large ears and orange eyes are also distinctive features.Far from being extinct, the Eagle Owl is one of the largest species in existence.

Playing with the natural pace of things appears to be a hobby of the uploader, as the majority of their videos show activities either slowed significantly down or sped up.

    They fly so silently, there is just a gentle swooze of air. We used to have one follow us at night on our walks. Such great beauty.
