A drone was flying a little too close to an erupting volcano and ended up being devoured by the lava.
The mesmerizing video was captured last week by photographer Joey Helms while he was filming the eruption of Iceland's Fagradalsfjall volcano.
In the video, the drone is flying over a flowing river of lava, eventually hovering over the top of the volcano's central crater.
Suddenly, the UAV can't maneuver fast enough and is quickly devoured by the molten rock.
"Around the volcano where you have the hot gases emitted they cause turbulences all around it and hot rocks raining on to you, flying these things is even more tricky," Helms said.
Obviously, Helms lost his drone but it did provide a one-of-a-kind piece of footage.
