Falcon Beauty Contest

 
Falconry is so popular in the UAE that they hold an annual beauty contest for the best looking bird. Entrants are judged on size, colourful feathers, the nose, neck (the longer the better) and beak (a short beak is preferred) and age.

An incredible shot. I've never seen anything like it. One handsome bird.

Thanks for posting this!
