    Owl at 1000 Frames per Second

    Saw this video bouncing around on the inntertubes, and thought I'd pass it along...

    Watch the owl's head. Talk about focus.

    Yes, pretty amazing.
    We had an owl around our property for a few days. He (she/it?) flew only a couple feet off the ground to get it's prey. Very interesting to watch. We only saw it at dusk, pics were not possible.
    Fun to have around, wish it would make our place it's home.

    Fascinating. Did you notice how the owl's head looked like a cat's head until he, she, it got fairly close to the camera.

    Wonder if the camera survived the owl's weapons?

    Enjoy,

    Very cool! Ain't technology wonderful! Being able to see such sights in slow motion gives you an even greater appreciation for the miracles of nature.
    I may be getting a little older physically but mentally I'm still tarp as a shack.

    Reminiscent of one of my favorite posters from the early seventies 'The Last Great Act of Defiance" featuring a mouse with attitude flipping off an eagle in about the same position as this owl in the last frame.
