This is what flying on the back of an eagle looks like (Video)

We as humans are afforded the opportunity to experience the world through a whole host of experiences -- though our perspective is almost always limited to the terrestrial. Even our earliest bipedal ancestors must have devoted some of their newfound mental capacity to ponder what it would be like to instead soar like a bird high overhead.

Truth is, they'd have probably love this footage too.

YouTube user Srachi recently uploaded the mesmerizing clip above, taken from a camera strapped to the back of an eagle flying through Mer de Glace in Chamonix, France.

Though we ground-dwellers have since claimed some dominion of the skies with our planes and helicopters, there is still something truly humbling about hitching a brief virtual ride upon a creature so suited to the air.
