BBC Earth has released a fascinating slow-motion video of a barn owl as it captures its prey. By training a female barn owl to strike where it heard a tone emanating, videographers managed to stage the perfect photo op. With uncanny precision and focus, the owl pounces, while two cameras capture the acrobatics in stunning detail. The mouse-eye view is particularly noteworthy.
