Ah, there’s nothing like a serene, airborne view of Dutch suburbs, is there?

Nature photographer Paul Huinink thinks so. He’s a fan of taking his camera-equipped drone copter out for a spin in his backyard to get a bird’s eye view of his neighborhood.

The family dog, though, is also a big fan of Paul’s drone copter – check out how excited he gets when the device lifts off at the beginning of the video.

So when Paul brings his toy back to earth well, the dog’s been waiting for it, and he’s not about to let it get away again.

Hey, at least he wasn’t anywhere near the White House. In their airspace, a dog is the least of your drone’s worries.
