How on earth do they film this stuff? There is the view of an eagle chasing a hare as if you are riding the eagle on its shoulders. The scene of an eagle attacking a monkey is so close up that you almost feel like you are for it. The quality of wildlife cinematography is unsurpassed. Each strafe is seen from both the view of the victim and the raptor. Incredible. 50 mins is a little long though.
