    This is a video of an eagle's flight from the top of the world's tallest building to his handler below.  The eagle wa
     fitted with a camera and released from the top of the 2,715 foot Burj Khalifa building in Dubai.


    The eagle had no idea where the tiny speck of land was that his handler was standing on or what it looked like among all
     of the other islands and buildings and people.


    Somewhere along the way, the eagle actually picks out and recognizes his trainer from among all of the other objects, people,


    You can see him looking, looking, looking for his trainer, who is invisible to the human eye and the camera, and then once
     he spots him, he folds his wings and drops like a bullet straight to his trainer.


    What is surprising is not only how efficiently the eagle spots his trainer from that altitude, but how smooth its flight
     is, with no camera shake whatsoever, even when it goes into a power dive.


    May we all have the eyes of an eagle.
