Most Awesome Photo Ever: A Girl and Her Eagle

Meet 13-year-old Ashol-Pan, badass Mongolian eagle huntress

Thanks to all the folks who sent this photo my way... because it is awesome. Meet 13-year-old Ashol-Pan, a typical smiling, sweet and shy girl from western Mongolia... who happens to know how to hunt with a freaking eagle. Perhaps the country's only eagle huntress. And she's apparently damn good at it too.

A 13-year-old eagle huntress in Mongolia

Ashol-Pan, the daughter of a celebrated hunter, is the lone girl amidst a tradition of Kazakh boys who start learning how to use golden eagles to hunt for foxes and hares at the age of 13. She is f**king fierce!

Excuse, Ms. Eagle Huntress, but you are awesome.
