    I guess I don’t get what conservationism has become. Joint efforts with
    Dubai and the BBC? Catching possibly endangered species in the Mekong?
    Umm, what?

    Oh no, it’s conservationism because now it’s about going viral.

    Wonderful. Thanks +BBC News. I really wanted to anticipate the bird diving
    from its POV for 5 minutes and then not get to see it. How did you know
    that that’s what I wanted?

    Aw, we don’t get a POV for the dive? That’s the whole reason I watched…

  10. Jenny Boerding says:

    want to fly like an eagle, to the sea, fly like an eagle, let my spirit

    All I really wanted to see was footage of the eagle divebomb from the
    eagle’s point of view, but instead they show him divebomb against a blue
    backdrop which makes it look like he isn’t even moving. Good choice in
    camera usage. “How often do people get the chance to see a divebomb from
    an eagle’s point of view? Eh, screw it, let’s use a different camera for
    that part.” Even if the wind speed from the dive didn’t give a super
    stable camera shot I would’ve preferred to see that over the shot with the
    sky as a backdrop.
