You capture the reality so perfectly. I feel as if I'm there too. Such a beautiful vista as a backdrop to the boy and eagle.

This is really a stunning image, there's a lot to like and nothing not to like. The size of the eagle compared to the boy, his clothes, the background, his expression make this a fascinating photo.

I used to live not far from Mongolia. Unless you were on some sort of specialist tourist trip, you must have traveled hard and far to find and document these people, which must have been a great journey. If you only came home with the memories and this photo, I think the journey would have been more than worth it. The series on these hunters, as a whole, is probably one of the best records of the eagle hunters I've ever seen, but this shot really does it for me.

You have captured something very special in this image Si, not only in the conditions and environment that come through but that moment with the child's hand on the eagles head, priceless.
