MATISSE AT MALHEUR

IBIS DIRCT

IBIS DUO
The ibis population at Malheur has fluctuated widely over the decades, but seems to be at a high-water marK even though the water itself is at a drought-time low.
IBIS FLAT
In flight the ibis shows no discernible pattern. It may fly singly, bunched strung out in a random formation. Cut-outs against a blue, like Matisse figures.
IBIS FLITE1
With marshes and flooded grassland at a low point this year the Malheur ibisa (or is it is ibises? ibisae? ibislands?) were often seen moving beteween feeding grounds separated by miles of dry terrain.

IBIS-CHAOS

IBIS-TRIO

IBIUS-ALOWN
IBIS-IRRIIBIS IN-GRSS
MATISSE? CHECK OUT HIS CUT-OUTS HERE. I RECENTLY GOT TO SEE AN EXHIBIT OF MANY MATISSE CUT-OUTS IN LONDON AND THE IBIS IN THE MALHEURIAN SKY BROUGHT IT ALL BACK.
