Pick a Word February 2021

Can you find the right image for Paula’s wonderful words? I have thought for a while and think I may have found the photos that just fit.

A bit of a tune to scroll to

MATERNAL

GUARDING

COHABITATION

GROUNDLESS

VARIEGATED

How did I do?

1 Red-necked Wallaby and Joey
2 Guard at Buckingham Palace
3 Cattle Egret and cow
4 Clouds
5 Variegated Fairy Wren

  1. 5 good ones. I like the cattle egret, it reminds me so much of South Africa. And thanks for the Variegated fairywren. I like Paula’s challenge because I learn new words or new aspects of words and sometimes, as with variegated, I realise I’ve been wrong all these years. I thought it meant a new cultivar, a variance of a source plant. And the fairywren was the first thing I looked up in wikipedia to check if my dictionary was correct. πŸ™‚ Again what learned! (Sorry, that is the German variant (!) of kitchen Latin – a German saying translated into English word by (often false) word. It’s something Germans find amusing.)

    1. Thank you Elke. One of my quests is to capture birds on other animals. I do find Paula’s words a challenge at times. Her photos are a great inspiration for the words. Translations can be amusing indeed πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚

  2. I originally matched the words with the wrong photos (I think I missed the top one) and I had the guard at Buckingham palace as “cohabitation”. It cracked me up because I thought you were commenting on his similarity to the lamp post. And then the heron was groundless which seemed reasonable and the cloud was variegated which was so beautiful that it seemed fine to me. It wasn’t until I got to the gorgeous little wren who had no title that I realized my error. Anyway, even if I laughed incorrectly, they still are absolutely beautiful photos. Thanks for sharing.

  3. You’ve set the bar high this month. So far I can only think of two that fit the words and one is similar to one of yours. That won’t do so it’s back to scanning.
