Alakosh the hunter and Ana the eagle.

While visiting Olga in the far West of Mongolia I stayed with this man and his extended family. Alakosh is the son of a famous eagle hunter who passed away three years ago. He is constantly striving to live up to his father's legacy. While he was generally a friendly man, when he decided to show me his prized eagle, Ana, he became very serious and proud.
