Portrait of a peregrine falcon (shahin) with its prey, a MacQueen's Bustard (houbara), in the sands surrounding Al Ain. A peregrine falcon, belonging to Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan's hunting party, stands with its wings spread wide, looking into the foreground, on a MacQueen's Bustard that it has killed. The bustard lies on its back in the sand. Feathers and a few sprigs of dry grass lie in the sand.
