Hi,
Look at this:
google.fr/dictionary?langpair= ...
there are now pics associated to some words.
There might be issues with that because of no copyright or source is mentioned.

Although you can click through and view the image in its original context (like with Image Search).

I assume they're using Google Image Labeler to help with this, but I wonder if they're using keywords from that exclusively rather than their less reliable guesses based on page content and ALT text.

I assume alt and page context and not the image labeler (check out this search google.fr/dictionary?aq=f& ...)

You can trigger the images with just about any animal search. The one for 'Deer' displays a motorcyle that hit a deer. Not sure that helps with the definition. :)
