Location: Western Mongolia (google maps) (wiki)
Date: October 6, 2007

Camera: Canon EOS-1D Mark III (Amazon)
Focal Length: 350mm
Aperture: f/7.1
ISO/Film: 250
Shutter Speed: 1/1250 sec

Note: Viacheslav Smilyk captured this photo of an eagle hunter in Mongolia. Eagle hunters train these eagles at a young age to become dependent on its master. The trust with the eagle will be lifelong, lasting twenty years or more. This picture portrays the bond the master and eagle have by the eagle approaching its master on call. Excellent capture by Viacheslav!

Tip: Viacheslav used a shutter speed (wiki) of 1/1250 of a second to freeze the action of the eagle landing on it’s masters arm. The wider aperture of 7.1, allowed for the subjects to be in focus and the mountains in the background to blurry.
