A sea eagle in Australia gave new meaning to the phrase “bird’s eye view” when it took off with a video camera.

The camera had been placed by park and wildlife rangers near a river to capture pictures of fresh water crocodiles.

The bird flew some 68 miles before setting the camera down and taking some upside down selfies.

You can see it appearing to pose as it pecks at the camera.
