I haven't a clue how they video these. I remain in awe.

One thing, the Osprey that gets the flounder, that is a completely different flounder. They have compiled footage they took underwater and made it look more linear after putting it all together. They use more than one shooter too, I'm sure, from different vantage points, and MAGIC! heheh

If you go to youtube and look up some of the NatGeo behind the scenes stuff you'd be amazed. building blinds and lugging superteles in the treetops. rigging remote cameras all over the place; and then shooting for months to get "the shot".

Amazingly beautiful footage. As with most nature photography, there's no trick to it but hard work, patience and incredible skill. The two things that stand out the most to me in this clip is the fantastic tracking and focus, and the underwater shot.

I wouldn't be surprised if the underwater shot was taken in a netted in area near shore to keep the flounder from escaping out of the view of the camera. Even though flounder are bottom feeders, they still move around a lot with the tide.
