Hunting with Eagles

Australian photographer Palani Mohan traveled to Mongolia for five years to capture the lives of the last eagle hunters, who tame young eagles, hunt with them for a number of years, then set them free. Some of these amazing black-and-white photos can be seen on his website, Palani Mohan: Hunting with Eagles. He also published a book with 90 of his photos.
