For this episode of “In the Frame”, we bring you the life blood of the Arabian Desert, the falcon.
The speed and natural instincts of this intrepid hunter were long admired by the nomadic peoples of the desert. Needing a tool to help them find food, the Bedouin would trap wild falcons, then use them to catch prey for a time before releasing them back into the wild.
These stunning birds are beautifully protected at the Dubai Desert Conservation Reserve.
