A drone is cruising high through the sky, capturing picturesque images of the Chicago skyline. During one striking shot, above the United Center and with the downtown skyscrapers in the distance, a visitor approaches the drone. We see an impressive and gorgeous hawk appear, and it doesn't seem thrilled with the remote-controlled intruder in the air. Check out the video below to see what happens.

"This was a crazy moment," writes the creator of the video @indoordronetours. "No birds or drones harmed, thankfully."
"What in the world?" asks @johnparkerbach incredulously.
"Always one of my fears when my drone is far away from me," admits commenter @rizo52.
"A bird in the sky?" jokes @rob.h16. "Shocking!"
"I've had some birds of prey circle mine," says @jayradg24. "But never had a strike."
"Pigeons always attack my drone," complains @waddell_engineering.
"My mini fell out of the sky last summer," says @shaunmacl. "Pretty sure a bird got it. Wish I had been recording. Flying fine, then green, blue, green, blue, green, blue, smack."
"Bird strike. Mayday, mayday, mayday," writes @dunkman54 melodramatically.
Viewer of the video @duffies91 offers some flying advice. "Birds are the worst, bro. Kick the stick to gain altitude and go evasive."
