This majestic owl flying back to it’s handler was filmed with:-
Photron Full HD High Speed Camera SA2
(1,000 frames per second)
Video via Andrew Bolt
That’s truly amazing! 🙂
It certainly is. 😀
Holy Moly! That was incredible — did you SEE those mighty talons at the very end? Yowza!
Just imagine if you were the prey and having that coming down on you. 😯
That was awesome, it made me have goosebumps watching him coming in to land! The filming of the owl was superb, and I loved the slow motion aspect as you could see his individual feathers working. Just incredible! Thanks so much for sharing.
I had to share it on my FB page which is about animals!
I agree, the filming was fantastic, it is incredible to watch the feathers as the owl is coming towards you.
I hope your friends on FB enjoy the videos.
I’ll let you know Mags!
I watched this full screen on my mac … awesome!
Oh yes it is brilliant on full screen I agree. 🙂
Thanks for sharing the amazing video, Mags.
I’m glad you enjoyed it. 😀
Doesn’t anyone get credit for the video? I’d want my name all over that. Award-winning, scary, incredible……….. all of the above.
It really makes you appreciate the beauty of the owl, the power as well as the lovely way in which the feathers work.
I googled speed camera videos, and I think I may have found the web site.
Wow is a very good word to describe the video. 🙂
Thank You for visiting and your comment, also thank you for mentioning me in your blog, your name doesn’t link back to your WordPress blog so I will put the link here.
Thanks, I have watched it three times! Amazing landing.
I’ll have to fix that link, didn’t realize it was going to my site.
This happens sometimes with the reblog, I think it’s better with trackbacks or pingbacks, that way your blog will show up in the comments as well. 🙂
What a magnificent bird!
Hi Lady Marilyn,
Magnificent and beautiful. 😀
Mags you find such amazing stuff. You can see everything: the huge wing span, the feathers, the talons, and what about the eyes… The camera must’ve been mounted right in the nest! I watched it several times.
I also watched it a few times, I found I picked up something different each time, just going over the wing span, and then the way the face of the owl changed, the owls talons, it’s just one of those videos. 🙂
These are the most amazing owl videos that I’ve ever seen. Thanks for sharing them. 🙂
It’s beautifully done that’s for sure. 😀
..imagine how mice feel seeing that coming at them…
It would be horrific for the poor old mice. The mice would look on the owl as some sort of monter I’m sure, and of course it is a monster for them.
Have an HD camcorder on my Christmas wish-list … but, if I get one, I’m not going to let any owls have it! 😀
Meanwhile, going to check my editing software, see if I can produce a slo-mo effect like that.
To use a much-overused word: AWESOME!!
I’m sure Santa will get you a HD camcorder for Xmas. 🙂
I wish you luck with your experiment on your software. 🙂
Incredible! I agree, look at those sharp talons–yikes!
Hi She’s a Maineiac,
It is the stuff of nightmares. 😀
Breathtaking – what a magnificent bird of prey! The look in its eyes was arresting…
The owl has beautiful eyes, so full, but staring, determined.
So glad to hear that, Thank You very much for visiting and thank you for taking the time to comment. 🙂
I love owls. How wonderful to see one in slow motion!
The owl does look very graceful in slow motion I feel. I have another owl post (funny) coming up shortly, I didn’t want to post it straight after this one. 🙂
