“A woman makes sure that her child — the eagle hunter’s grandson — is safely secure,” writes #YourShotPhotographer Tariq Zaidi. “Hunting with eagles is currently only practiced by a handful of Kyrgyz and Kazakhs in one of the planet’s most desolate and harsh terrains, the Altai Mountains. This form of falconry, the practice of hunting with the aid of birds of prey, can be traced back as far as 4,000 years in Central Asia.”

Top Shot features the photo with the most votes from the previous day’s Daily Dozen, 12 photos chosen by the Your Shot editors from thousands of recent uploads. Our community votes for their favorite photo from the selection, and the Top Shot is showcased on the @natgeoyourshot Instagram account.
