Birds on a hot day look for every opportunity to quench their thirst with water, and one deprived pigeon found water under the scorching sun courtesy of the animal-loving Sheikh Hamdan.
Sharing the incident with his 11 million followers on Instagram, Dubai Crown Prince, His Highness Sheikh Hamdan bin Mohammed Al Maktoum captured the moment a pigeon landed on his yacht in search of water, bobbing its head back and forth and looking around.
It wasn’t until Sheikh Hamdan filled a bowl with water next to the pigeon and quenched its thirst. He even slowed his yacht to feed the bird.

If you scroll through the Crown Prince’s Instagram, there’s no shortage of adorable videos featuring him and his adventures with animals, especially birds.
Last year, Sheikh Hamdan shared a video leaving his car gathering dust while it’s parked after spotting a couple of white-tipped birds hatch a nest and captured heartwarming footage of the duo laying eggs giving birth to two chicks.
Check out the last time Sheikh Hamdan bonded with a camel after calling him by his name:
