Thought this was an absolutely amazing and spellbinding photo of a bird peeking out from a bush.
I've never actually seen anything like this captured up close like this.
The bird seemed to cooperate.
It reminds me of a baby gestating in it's mother's womb, so content, so sheltered.
Not quite ready to come out into the real world, but snug in place, yet observant.
Too soon to be contemplating next steps in the complex world outside its immediate cozy shelter.
Perhaps, there is a part of us that craves that simplicity, innocence, and existence sheltered from all the bumps and bruises.
Oh, to have such peace of mind and spirit, absent heart-wrenching day-to-day dilemmas we face.
Like a bird nestled in a bush looking out with that simple wonder and purity of life itself.
