A Hawk Attacking a Balloon In Slo-Mo Is a Graceful Murderous Ballet
Using incredible high speed camera work the team reveal how a Goshawk attacks it's prey during mid flight.
There's no denying that everything looks cooler in slow motion, but birds of prey on the hunt are particularly mesmerizing through the lens of a high-speed camera.
This Goshawk is being lured into attacking a water balloon baited with a piece of meat, and its mid-air maneuvers make even our most advanced fighter planes look primitive.
And while no one has ever questioned the lethality of a hawk's claws (or the fragility of a balloon) watching it tear into this water balloon is just terrifying.
If there's one lesson to walk away with here, it's to never walk around in the wilderness with a chunk of raw meat on your head. (Source)
