Leap and the Net Will Appear

Quote from John Burroughs, American author and naturalist:
"Leap and the net will appear"
Today, this Eastern Bluebird finally got up the courage to leap from the comfort and safety of its nest box, where it had hatched about two weeks ago. But on the way out, it stumbled and caught itself on the edge of the box. After flapping madly, it landed on the top of the baffle under the box.  It finally flew away to the safety of the trees while its sibling watched from inside the box.

It takes courage to try something new, to leave the comfort of the known.  
But sometimes that effort will bring us a better view.
