This GIF was uploaded to Reddit today; it originates from a 2013 YouTube video that had over one million views, but I hadn’t seen it before and I can’t stop watching. I was certain that the predatory bird was going to come away with the fish, and maybe a hook, in its mouth but that didn’t end up being the case. The extent to which that man kept his cool and balance, and emerged victorious in the battle, was rather impressive.
