AirVuz contributor RIK Fotos brings us this excellent drone view of the Lion's Head Monument on the battlefield of Waterloo in Belgium.  The 4.5 meter (15 ft.) lion statue sits atop an artificial hill.  The monument commemorates the great battle which took place here in June, 1815 between the forces of Napoleon Bonaparte and those of the Seventh Coalition led by the British general the Duke of Wellington and the Prussian general von Blücher.  The smashing Coalition victory led to the final downfall and exile of the French Emperor.
