A confusion of wildebeest, Tanzania, January 2018

Yes, I’m back with another collective noun. This is an unusual one, but I really didn’t invent it! It is thought that this term is related to the exuberant and erratic behaviour of the wildebeest, especially during the grand migration. Another theory is that it is linked to his wild, unkempt, and somewhat comical, appearance.

    • Amazing what things are out there that we do not know. Glad you like the images.
      I enjoyed your confusion even though you mentioned Brexit! A fun image to go with it


  1. I guess that’s the privilege of the hostess–choosing a word she’ll be able to kill! 🙂 I’d never heard of confusion being used in that way, but I like it. I think sometimes at work we have a confusion, too, in all senses of the word. 🙂 At any rate, I obviously went a different way:

    Happy Sunday, Debbie, and all readers/followers!

  2. Dazzle and confusion – nice twists these last two weeks
    And I love the third photo with the tail, folds of skin and all the green surround – beautiful portrait –
    Oh and my entry has a fish this week (no “school” tho -ha) and it will go live tomorrow –


      • they do look deep in thought – and they have such a power or strength vibe – very cool

        and I connected my image to the very last book plug (whew – feel like I am leaving the buffet after eating a few plates and glad to be done with the book share … )
