The Boy with the Golden Eagle (in Mongolia)

I love birds. In Mongolia and Kazakhstan, golden eagles are kept as hunting birds, along the same tradition as falconry in other areas of the world. While driving out to Terelj National Park, I happened to see this kid with his bird and stopped to take a few pictures. Fantastic!

More photos after the break!
