An excited anhinga came up with a nice size fish in the marsh this morning. It was a good fish. No, a great fish and will fill her up quite nicely leaving the rest of the morning available for relaxing in the sun.
But the fish was too nice. Or rather, too big. The anhinga could not flip and swallow a fish this large. She had no choice but to let it go and continue fishing for a more appropriate size morning meal. Well so it goes in nature and in life, what starts off to look like a great day turns into disappointment.
I think many of us can relate.
