Majestic Eagle Caught Catching Fish In Slow-Motion

A majestic bald eagle catching a fish dinner in epic slow motion has become a viral video.

Tom Schiesser was on an angling trip off Thorne Bay in Alaska, USA, when he tried to release a juvenile rockfish he had caught.

Before he could get the catch off his line, the sharp-eyed predator came sweeping from near the shoreline.

Diving out of the cloudy sky, the eagle clutches its prey the fish in its claws before using its powerful wings to escape and enjoy its meal.
