I am in awe seeing these pictures of 13-year old Ashol-Pan, a lovely young lady in Mongolia who is probably the first female in 2000 years to be apprenticed to the golden eagle hunters. (Okay, so, the article says her father is a "particularly celebrated hunter" himself, so she may have had an "in," but still!)

These pictures from the BBC's Asher Svidensky are just beautiful. I hope they post more!
