Paula at Lost in Translation’s Thursday Special – Pick a Word in August Y3 is a challenge to find a photo representing each of the following words: fortified, chic, submerged, embodiment, and prehistoric. I found good examples of each in my photos of Tanzania.
fortified – this fence of nettles and thorny acacia branches fortifies a Maasai village from potential intruders (Tanzania)
chic: this male kori bustard shows off for his mate!
submerged: mother & baby hippos
embodiment – this reconstruction of “Lucy” is the embodiment of australopithecus afarensis, a distant ancestor of hominids, and the work archaeologists do to piece together fossilized remains to learn about the evolution of species. (Museum at Olduvai Gorge, Tanzania)
prehistoric: skull of homo habilis, Olduvai Gorge, Tanzania
