I spent this evening at the Date Palm Festival at the Exhibition Centre in Abu Dhabi.

There was plenty going on there and about five different falcons. A man in traditional dress brought the falcon towards me, I was super excited and asked in my broken Arabic whether I could touch the falcon.

I reached out to touch his feathers, and the falcon started to flap its wings. In response I pulled my hand away and gave a tiny squeal.

The man looked at me like I had insulted his bird... and walked away.

Certainly an epic falcon-fail.
