A group of friends were ice fishing when they set up a GoPro camera and got an up-close look at an eagle.

It happened in Maine two weeks ago.  The friends were fishing and noticed an eagle was watching their every move from it's nearby nest.  After their first catch of the day, the eagle swooped down close to them before retreating.

They put their camera into position, left a fish, and moved away with the hopes of capturing some great video.


It didn't take long for the eagle to approach and give a few looks to the camera before snatching the fish in it's talons and taking off.

This VIDEO <-----is a little longer and has a clearer picture that shows how amazing the eagle really is.
