Birds of Prey - Dubai
A few days ago I went to the Birds of Prey show in Dubai. A German-Hungarian couple, show several graceful Birds of Prey in flight. I've seen several of these shows all over the world and must say that this one is definitively the most personal one.
Spectators are very close to the action and with a limited amount of visitors, there is a plenty of opportunity for questions and photographing the birds after the show.
We went to the 5pm show, which due to a 5.35 sunset time, limited the amount of "good light". On FRI and SAT there is also a 10am show, which I will try to attend next time...
Some of the birds we saw were:
this "Griffon Vulture"
a "Bald Eagle", the national bird of the US
Several Owls, including this Eagle Owl
"Saker Falcons", like this one sitting on the head of one of the spectators
And this Harris Hawk playing with a toy rabbit
If you are in Dubai, make sure that you pay Birds of Prey a visit! It is more than worth the money; 50AED for adults, 25AED for kids.
Remember, don't just take pictures, make pictures!
