A 13-year-old Mongolian girl who hunts with golden eagles is making the rest of us look, well, kind of boring in comparison. Photographer and travel writer Asher Svidensky captured Ashol-Pan in some (there’s no other word for it) awesome photos. The practice of hunting with golden eagles has a long history in the area, but as far as anyone can tell that tradition doesn’t usually include girls. Which makes us love these photos even more. Hats off to both Asher the photographer and Ahshol-Pan the subject. What an inspiring photo shoot.
