It’s hard to get accurate footage of nature, but technology is now allowing us to do things we never could in the past.
The Fish Whisperer decided to strap a GoPro onto a turtle he befriended so he could get us a unique view of turtles who live in a pond.
First, he showed us what he has to work with: a humble GoPro and a friendly turtle.
Here’s the turtle’s view of The Fish Whisperer.
And our turtle friend is off! He also has a fish treat for the road.
We can see the sediment of the pond, but otherwise, things seem relatively peaceful.
Bass fish also live in this pond, and they generally swim too fast to make themselves seen.
But of course, these underwater views of plants are super cool! You get a nice mix of plants that are underwater and above ground.
Our turtle friend surfaces so he can get a treat from The Fish Whisperer for his hard work!
These shots of fellow turtles are quite stunning! Just look at them go.
The Fish Whisperer really seemed to build rapport with our turtle friend!
You can see the full video below and see exactly how he was able to gently get the turtle to capture this footage.
The idea of strapping a GoPro onto a turtle isn’t new, but the footage looks awesome nonetheless.
