If you’re having a long day, try this.

It’s not new information that Dubai’s leaders are friends to the animals, but we’re still loving this example.

HH Sheikh Hamdan bin Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum has shared a short video of himself and his father, HH Sheikh Mohammed, having a moment with a very inquisitive bird.

The Crown Prince of Dubai posted the video on Instagram yesterday, and it’s already been view more than half a million times.

In the clip, the bird is first shown eating from someone’s hand, before HH Sheikh Hamdan gets involved. From there, it jumps to his head, flaps around a bit, and then makes the short journey to HH Sheikh Mohammed’s head.

Both royals seem pretty delighted with the visit. HH Sheikh Mohammed in particular cracks a wide smile.

This new video reminds us of this classic shot of the Vice President and Prime Minister of the UAE having a moment with a baby camel back in the day.

As for HH Sheikh Hamdan, there are almost too many moments to pick from. The royal is a complete animal whisperer.

We’ll leave you with a couple of our favourites…
