This is Sue Fox's fantastic photo from her trip to Western Mongolia, Ulgii (Olgii) province.
"This photo was taken in March 2017 in Western Mongolia, Ulgii (Olgii) province. I was extremely fortunate to spend several days with 3 different Kazakh eagle hunter families. This is an amazing cultural tradition of the Kazakh nomadic people. They use awesome golden eagles. This really heavy eagle belongs to Bashahan, a very proud, friendly and welcoming host for 3 nights. I was very excited to get the chance to wear his eagle hunting clothes. This was a very rare opportunity to be allowed to do this! I was thrilled and buzzing with happiness!" - Sue Fox (Phnom Penh, Cambodia)
