Childs Game…

OK, another stay-at-home week. My grand-daughter is getting very bored. Pleas for help from her parents send me to my photo archives.

Grand-daughter…let’s play a game…”strange animals from faraway lands.”

Rummaged through my animal pics folder…nothing stellar here (wildlife photography is not my forte nor do I have appropriate kit) just “vacation pics” but, worthy of inclusion in a child’s game.

Can you name that animal…no?

Let’s ask the Google and see if we can find it. Teaching her a bit about "search strategies" we stated by describing what the animal looked like and searching on those terms. Eventually getting close and then looking at pictures to make the final identification.

Entertained her for about two hours (yes, I was amazed too), seeking, searching and learning about these strange animals.

We had an entertaining time together.

While on assignment in KL, Malaysia I took several days holiday to Borneo. Fantastic experience and a photo op at almost every turn.

    Well, kudos to you, Gato, because you've educated me as well as your grand-daughter. I wasn't aware of animals seen in #s 1, 3, and 4. Thanks for posting these shots. I'm eagerly awaiting your next development session with your telling what I'll learn. Take care.

    I always wanted to lie naked on a bearskin rug in front of a fireplace. Cracker Barrel didn't take kindly to it.
