Aboriginal Dance by onewing

Aboriginal Dance

Friday people day again and today's picture is of a traditional Aboriginal animal dance. See if you can figure out what animals they are imitating. No prizes though, but you will get a round of applause if you get them right.

I haven't got time at the moment to comment on your pics because we have got relatives staying Will catch up when they have left.

Today's topic photo - street art

emu and that's me done - although the first fellow looks like he is dancing maybe a chimp but they are not Australian so that doesn't feel right to me lol

Not sure I can guess so will just say what a super shot Babs, the body paint is impressive.

So not the Haka then (wrong country!) LOL!
From left: some sort of monkey/baboon, bird, ostrich.
Look forward to seeing the truth.

@annied Close with a chimp Annie, ha ha, but as you say they aren't Australian. The first one is a kangaroo, the second is a wedge tail eagle and the third is an emu.

@onewing Oh, an eagle, couldn't think what he was :)

I got the emu but nothing else, still none of them are familiar in the UK!
January 17th, 2015  
fabulous

@yaorenliu ha ha, definitely not.
January 18th, 2015  
@eyesmile ha ha, nice try Gena, but we don't get too many apes, flamingos or elephants in the wild in Australia. They were imitating native creatures.

@bkbinthecity @neatz @ceilidh @denisefuller Thanks everyone and well done for getting the emu Margaret.
January 18th, 2015  
Looks like some sort of bird to me. Oh just read the other comments. Didn't think of emu. Silly me.
