I just got home from my morning adventures. No, not with an eagle, but a nice walk with the ladies and then a documentary playing at our local independent theater: The Eagle Huntress. It's about this 13-year-old Kazakh who was raised in a family of eagle hunters. It's not something that girls are usually allowed to do, but her father and grandfather were one hundred percent behind her and helped her capture and train her own eagle. The documentary is wonderful, for many reasons, but the photography (with the use of drones and GoPro cameras) shows the amazing Mongolian countryside, as well as the trials and tribulations she faced to become a true eagle huntress. Here's the video:
I enjoyed it for many reasons, but the best part is watching this young girl who decided that nothing was going to make her happy except this pursuit, and her family's support of her efforts. Not to mention having to do it in -40°F conditions! If you get a chance to see it, I highly recommend it.
