14th Annual Smithsonian.com Photo Contest
While attending the Eagle Festival at Olgii, West Mongolia, we were invited to visit the Eagle hunter's home. The Kazakh are a semi-nomadic people who raise sheep and yaks for their main food source. This eagle hunter couple lives in a Ger. When we asked them to take a photo, the hunter held his wife's hand and she was shy for his display of love in front of visitors.
