During one repetition, Diode pushed on my hand—hard—toward the computer monitor.
Diode, as you see in these recreations for the camera, did try it at home—though not my idea. Diode has not been trained to get food by tapping a yellow disc—or any other way. She imitated the dragon’s successful target tap on the second time she saw the video. She steered to the screen in my right hand as I held the camera in the left (not too easy in real time). Some shots missed entirely, but two (above) caught the action.
Diode approaches a virtual nose bump with Sunny,
again a photo with a live, moving Diode and the video.
