Have you ever wondered what the world looks like to a bird soaring high above us? This awesome video is your chance to find out.
A YouTube user named Srachi mounted a GoPro camera on the back of an eagle. The footage was recorded as the magnificent bird flew over a stunning mountain range in Chamonix, France.

Edit: Thanks to Geyser of Awesome tipster Abel, we just learned that this awesome helicopter belongs to the Hungarian Air Force. She was nicknamed “Csőrike” (which means Tweetie) and given this spectacular paint job for the 2000 Szentkirályszabadja Airshow in Hungary. Should you want to visit Csőrike (and why wouldn’t you?), she can now be found at the Aircraft museum in Szolnok, Hungary. Thanks Abel!
It’s been at least a month since we last shared some examples of awesome origami, which is just about too long. Vietnamese paper artist Nguyễn Hùng Cường lives and works in Hanoi uses a special Vietnamese handmade paper called Dó to create his impressively dynamic origami pieces.
"Cường tells All Things Paper that he began folding around the age of five or six and although his work has been featured in numerous popular books on origami, he has not yet made it his full-time career.”
Visit Nguyễn Hùng Cường’s Flickr page to view many more examples of his amazing folded paper artwork.
This magnificent eagle was created by Russian artist Sergey Bobkov, who specializes in making animals using wood chips cut from Siberian cedar.
"Bobkov, who received a patent on manufacturing art sculptures made of cutting chips, has made a total of 15 life-size wooden sculptures of Siberian birds and animals. The artist is known to study an animal’s anatomy and habits before creating these one-of-a-kind sculptures."

To get a better sense of where the horse-eagle is on this building: if you look at this photo you’ll see eagles atop the ledge of a tower in the upper righthand corner of the image. Yeah, that’s pretty impressive.
We suspect that Vitaliy (or possibly an equally daring friend) might have played a role in placing the mask on the eagle, but without proof we’re prepared to believe that all of the buildings in Moscow sporting ornamental eagle sculptures are being enhanced with horse masks as a matter of official policy.
