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 on the crest of a sand dune. The peregrine faces towards the near left. A falconer's mangalah (cuff) lies in the sand to the right of the wakir. In the background the crest of the dune continues into the far distance.
