دبي، الإمارات العربية المتحدة، 20 سبتمبر 2020: صورة للشيخ بطي مكتوم بن جمعة مع صقر الجير الثمين. يبدأ الشيخ تدريباته قبل بزوغ الفجر خلال الموسم باستخدام تقنيات متعددة لتدريب الصقور على مواجهة ظروف الصيد الأكثر صعوبة. وبذلك، يكون الشيخ قد درّبه لمطاردة الصقر في أوزبكستان وباكستان وأماكن أخرى في تقليد يعود إلى آلاف السنين. يشكّل الصيد بالصقور رمزاً وطنياً ويعكس شجاعة هذا الطائر.
