There's a great sense of majesty.
Whether it's a, a gorilla taking its picture or a hawk sending a drone to the ground, watching members of the animal kingdom take down their flying machine overlords is a thing of beauty.
In a video posted to the Melbourne Aerial Video YouTube channel on Saturday, it was an Australian Wedge-Tailed Eagle's turn to get in on the drone-destruction action. While the company posted the original footage of the attack on Saturday, a new video posted on Wednesday shows the eagle taking down the drone in slow motion. You can watch that slow-mo footage below.
In the clip, we see a drone flying in a lush green area of Australia when, all of a sudden, an eagle comes soaring in on a mission of destruction. With just a single strike, the eagle sends the pesky drone crashing to the Earth below.
Fortunately, both the eagle and the drone are fine, though the drone hopefully learned a lesson or two about what happens when a bird of prey decides that it's ready for its next meal.
