In Over His Head ~ Almost

  I thought this Ibis looked like it was in "over his head" but it was most likely the perfect place for him to find some food. Sometimes in life, we can feel like we are in WAY over our heads, but eventually find out that it was really the perfect place for us to be at just the right time.

We do not believe in ourselves until someone reveals that deep inside us something is valuable, worth listening to, worthy of our trust, sacred to our touch. Once we believe in ourselves we can risk curiosity, wonder, spontaneous delight or any experience that reveals the human spirit.
 ~ E.E. Cummings

He's so beautiful. Lovely in amongst all that green, green grass.

Good for him. He seems pretty unphased.... I bet he could trim the grass with his beak if he wanted.

I love this photo--well composed with the bird looking like he is about to catch something. It makes me miss summer already.
