I dedicate this new blog thread to my father Bobbo, who worked for the Forest Service. On one of our last family visits we sat around and gleefully read out a list describing groups of animals … See how many you can guess. Answers listed at the bottom of the page.
- The shrewdness shrewdly assessed the jungle floor.
- This obstinacy obstinately refused to budge.
- The covert covertly hid, migrating only at night.
- The big bask basked in the river, seemingly aware nothing would dare attack them.
- In spite of myself I was charmed by the pitiful piteousness.
- The safe sought safety on the shoreline.
- Shrewdness of apes 
- Obstinacy of buffalo
- Covert of coots
- Bask of crocodiles
- Piteousness of doves
- Safe of ducks (on land)

I looked at the answers right away, because I didn’t guess any of the answers. Wonderful photos.
Hi Ruth! I agree – Uwe’s photos are wonderful.
I got them all wrong of course– but what a fun post!
Lots more to come — I have a whole year of The Animal Kingdom posts scheduled!
