A heart-stopping video shared by the Dubai Crown Prince shows an ostrich dart past as he cycles on a track in Dubai.

“This morning another close call,” Sheikh Hamdan bin Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum posted on Instagram along with the minute-long video.

The video goes on to show two ostriches — the world’s fastest bird (on land) — run at full speed as Sheikh Hamdan and his entourage cycle on the track.

Last week, the Dubai Royal had posted a photo showing an ostrich dart past a track he is cycling on. He used “#closecall #cycling #mydubai” to describe the encounter.

Sheikh Hamdan is very passionate about wildlife. In August last year, the Dubai Crown Prince took his Mercedes SUV off the roads for a while — because a little bird decided to build a nest on its windshield.
