The nimble Microdrone MD4-1000 quadrotors helped film this pretty great footage in Kenya, where they're able to hover above herds from a vantage point us mere humans can't pull off.

I agree. It's been ages since I had a little giraffe as a treat and I don't care what anybody else says, giraffe goes wonderfully with potatoes.
