When I first saw this theme…
…I immediately thought of this
form of communication.
Then nonverbal came to mind.
Definite signs of tenderness and caring
for each other are being exhibited.
Without context this is simply an image of two birds.
These two would look at each other and
exchange a few words, as in this photo.
They would then look straight ahead
while furiously bobbing their heads up and down.
When they had ‘laughed’ at the joke
they would start another story,
repeating the cycle every thirty seconds or so.
Must have been short jokes.
When ears are shaken in this manner,
know that you have been warned.
This elephant is definitely wanting its own
space and is telling tourists to get lost,
in no uncertain manner.
If unheeded the next move is to
lay the ears flat against its head and charge.
