A Turtledove at the Monaco Grand Prix

A Turtledove at the Monaco Grand Prix

This video went viral on the web last week, with the luckiest bird of the hour; a video filmed by the crews of DVS. 
On the Monaco racetrack, the super-slow-motion camera (1000 frames per second) filmed an undoubtedly audacious turtledove standing on the “swimming pool turn” of the track.
The bird treats us to a magnificent back flip as it narrowly escapes the one-seater.
The slow-motion flapping wings are still in the public eye.
