Eagle Hunter by momamo

Eagle Hunter

The Kazakh fiercely believe in pre-Islamic cults of the sky, ancestors, life and the supernatural forces of good and evil spirits. During the Communist period, many Kazakh fled to the Altai mountains of Mongolian. Each hunter has its own golden eagle, which he captures when young and trains himself. Hunting is done in horseback and in winter when the foxes are easier to spot against the snow. This young hunter came to Atyrau at Nauruz, springfestival a few years back. It’s still one of my favourite shots taken in those 7 1/2 yrs in this country. One day in the future I hope to go the Golden Eagle Festival in Mongolian....
Wonderful shot and information! Fav

Impressive portrait, not an ordinary man. The details of the bird, the vest and the hat are beautiful.
