Literally everything looks awesome in super slo-mo, and this video is no exception.

 

 

That video was shot at four thousand frames-per-second.  FOUR THOUSAND!  For reference, a typical movie is shot at 24fps, a high-end HDTV uses 50 or 60fps. This uses 4freaking000.

I actually feel sorta bad for the bird, thinking he's about to grab a delicious meal when suddenly his prey explodes into a bunch of nothing.  Poor fella.
