POTD: Thriving on Chaos

Thriving on Chaos
St. Petersburg, Florida
2019

I would be hopelessly tangled and lost if dropped into the middle of a mangrove swamp. In fact we once would have been lost kayaking in a mangrove swamp if I had not had the foresight to tie bright orange flags at all the junctions of the maze of canals we were trying to find our way out of. These ibis however seemed quite able to navigate and benefit from what the swamp has to offer without such help.
