Without the figure, the #birds have more #wing space, but they are still tethered by the rules set by the #collage, and by the #landscape they have been given. Upon closer inspection, the Southern cassowary appears to have a domestic #garden setting for a backcloth, the Magnificent #riflebird (Ptiloris magnifies), a drawing room. Closer to natural, but not quite, this #wilderness we've conjured is tame. As our pockets of wild grow smaller, how thoughtless, the human animal.
