Thank you to Elisabeth and Cristina for setting me my first elephant challenge. This morning was a beautiful sunny morning, so I set off in search of my 2 elephants. Although they were numbers 48 and 100, they were actually very close to each other. I found them sitting on the banks of the river Thames, almost opposite the Tower of London and close to Tower Bridge. This is elephant 48:
and here is elephant 100:
I think you'll agree that London in the sunshine is really beautiful (with or without elephants).
Anyway, not only did I find Nos. 48 & 100, but I also found a whole herd of elephants:
This started me thinking about words that describe groups of animals - so here's a little quiz for you. Can you find out what the collective noun is for a group of...
- owls? (This is my favourite!)
Take care (and don't forget to let me know if you want me to track down other elephants!)
track down: to look for and find
PS: As requested, I've been out and about looking for more elephants. First of all this is elephant number 13: it's called "Doors" and was requested by Emat:
And this one is number 86 for Elisabeth (number 68 is a bit further away and I haven't managed to get there yet!)
Number 86 was part of a whole herd of elephants marching through Green Park towards Buckingham Palace:
I really liked the eyes on this one (Number 243):
The elephants are only around for another couple of weeks and then they are off to be touched up before they are sold.
touch up: to make minor repairs - usually to the paintwork of something
PPS: Well, here it is: the very expensive elephant. This is an "indoor" elephant, as it's not weather-proof!
