I like that you can see him engage the reverse thrusters so as not to overshoot the boat. Very cool.

Nice catch.

I was driving somewhere near the Ozarks on an Interstate next to a bluff and the eagles would pick things out of the back of pickups.  The flight dynamics had to be crazy for a bird to soar around looking for something interesting, dive to intercept while matching the speed of the truck only to be hit by strange wind as it gets into the bed and then to pull out while lifting whatever it found.

He was reducing his stall speed by moving his wings forward instead of his body.  Very cool indeed.

I was out sailing on the river last year, and a bald eagle swooped in about 50 yrds away and grabbed a fish out of the water.

This is a sea eagle in the Lofoten Islands of northern Norway.

The video is from May 3, 2019 by the tourist company Svinøya Rorbuer - BaseCamp Lofoten​Z​p/?igshid=1lc062qz9n28d

This hasnt stopped some from claiming it is an Andean Condor in Tierra del Fuego.​1​45032397869723649

That lens flare at the very end really tied the room together.

I loved the comment: "Agholor would've dropped it". Gotta love those Iggles fans!

You know, I've often dreamt it would be great to fly like a bird.  So now I realize that just in case our flying dreams are ever granted that we'd better start playing catch with our feet.

Boooooring... would have been better if he picked up one of the boaters and flew off
