Portrait of a peregrine falcon (shahin), belonging to Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan's hunting party, resting in the sands near Al Ain. A peregrine falcon perches on a carved wooden wakir (block) staked in the sand. The peregrine faces directly forward. The falcon's burqa (hood) lies in the sand to the right of the wakir. In the background a vast expanse of sand continues into the far distance.
