A Norwegian woman's videos have gone viral because of how good she is at running and jumping like a horse

A Norwegian woman's videos have gone viral because of how good she is at running and jumping like a horse Ayla Kirstine has an unusual skill — she can canter with equine form, and jump clean over some very high homemade jumps.

Steve Biro had the photo of an eagle and its reflection in his mind before he left the door that day.

Even with a clear artistic vision, Biro wasn't sure he'd be successful. When he tried to achieve that vision previously, it didn't work out.

"The year prior, the water was quite ripply. I found myself I wasn't in a great position to get the image that I was really hoping for," said Biro, who has been doing amateur photography for about ten years.

"This time I sat myself right down by the water. I laid down on a rock right at the water's edge and got nice and low."

And Biro was rewarded.

It was a cloudy day on May 4, but still fairly bright at Canadian Raptor Conservancy in Vittoria, Ont., near Simcoe.

This Man’s Hilarious Viral AirBnB Story Is Every Traveler’s Worst Nightmare When Ben Speller booked a "clean room with a private bathroom" in Amsterdam on AirBnB, he did not expect to arrive to find a shipping container.

The eagle was unhappy with where he was perched, said Biro, and it shot daggers with him the entire time he was there.

It flew over a pond multiple times. And in one of hundreds of photos Biro snapped, the eagle had its wings wide open, ready to fly toward Biro's camera.

Not only that, Biro captured the reflection of the bird he had wanted a year ago.

"He flew kind of straight at me and over my head, and was close enough that I could feel the wind from his wings as I laid there."

While Biro had taken many photos across the world as he travelled and hiked, he said this one of the eagle definitely makes it into his top ten.

It's also making its way into people's hearts. The photo has made it to the front page of Reddit.com and to USAtoday.com.

"I got the image I wanted and I was still surprised by the overall reception and the way it resonates with the people all over," said Biro.

As he has done with some other photographs he's taken, Biro will be selling prints of this eagle.

A former Windsor resident who died with his wife in a London-area car crash on Saturday, is being remembered for his dedication to work, faith and family. Khaldoun (Sam) El-Rifai, 48, and his wife Rabia Sayour, 26, along with three of their children, were visiting Sam's brother Hayssam Rifai before the fatal crash. "I asked him to stay for supper because we were fasting," said Rifai. "He said no, he has to go get some clothes for the kids." And that's where the family went; to buy new clothes for the children to wear at the end of Ramadan. When they were 20 minutes away from their home in Dresden, Ont.
