Portrait of a peregrine falcon (shahin) with its prey, a stone curlew, in the sands surrounding Al Ain. In the right foreground a peregrine falcon belonging to Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan's hunting party stands on a stone curlew, holding it down on the sand. The stone curlew's neck is broken and leans to the left. The peregrine holds a tuft of the curlew's feathers in its beak. In the far background dry tufts of vegetation grow in the sand.
