We're so glad you asked. This video – shot by an eagle with a camera mounted on its back – gives us a spellbinding look at what it's like to wheel gracefully over the Mer de Glace in Chamonix, France. Good grief, talk about a stunning view.

You'll want to watch this one in full screen, obviously, HD, and with the sound cranked right up. What's flying, after all, without the sound of the wind whipping along your feathers?
