The Great Pyramid of Giza, from a new perspective.

Alexander Ladanivskyy flew a drone with a high resolution camera over top of the Great Pyramid. That alone is an amazing perspective. Such a recognizable icon if there ever was one, but never from this perspective.

Ladanivskyy then got very very close up! It's easy to forget how big the Pyramid is. Of course it's not a straight-edged triangle, but have you really thought about it?

The goose flying upside down is "simply showing off", experts say.
