English term or phrase: Knowing that you're not top dog is a welcomed discomfort,
* Stunning photos of the endangered Everglades *

Now despite all this rich life that abounds in these swamps, they still have a bad name. Many people feel uncomfortable
with the idea of wading into Florida's blackwater. I can understand that. But what I loved about growing up in the Sunshine State is that for so many of us, we live with this latent but very palpable fear that when we put our toes into the water, there might be something much more ancient and much more adapted than we are. *** Knowing that you're not top dog is a welcomed discomfort, *** I think. How often in this modern and urban and digital age do you actually get the chance to feel vulnerable, or consider that the world may not have been made for just us? So for the last decade, I began seeking out these areas where the concrete yields to forest and the pines turn to cypress, and I viewed all these mosquitoes and reptiles, all these discomforts, as affirmations that I'd found true wilderness, and I embrace them wholly.
Now as a conservation photographer obsessed with blackwater, ....

Knowing that you're not top dog is a welcomed discomfort, = ?
