    Edit Photo Details The Golden Eagle   #tradition #ngmcreate #natgeoinspires #portrait #people #golden_eagle #culture
    With extreme patience and dedication the Kazakh have domesticated to their advantage the different qualities of the eagle. The raptor, with its untamable courage, its fast flying abilities, acute vision and hearing capabilities has become man’s hunting companion that cannot be substituded. In the past this activity was done only by men, today more often the teenage girls learn to hunt with the Golden Eagle.
