Portrait of a peregrine falcon (shahin) killing its prey, a MacQueen's Bustard (houbara), in the sands surrounding Al Ain. On the left a peregrine falcon, belonging to Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan's hunting party, wrestles with its quarry, a MacQueen's Bustard, beside a bush. The peregrine's wings are spread wide, and it stands near the head of the bustard. Around them vegetation grows in the sand.
