Burqa for sale

Hoods are called “burqa” in Arabic falconry and come in many beautiful and different designs for your falcon. This shot at 1/200 at F4.5. The Arab hood is marked by the circular pattern to make the hood fit the contours of the eyes and head. These are typically molded on a block and have a flat back with the braces woven in and out of leather pleats making an accordion of the back’s base. The advantage of this style of brace closure is that it is smooth and tends not to catch the bird’s crest feathers. This was shot in Abu dhabi.
