(CNN) — In Australia, a sea eagle added new meaning to the phrase “bird’s eye view” when it took off with a 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.

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

The theft happened back in May, but workers recently found the camera — which recorded the entire incident!
