bike to spill

Just took a nasty spill on my bike. Was riding in a ditch, up on a little ledge, and didn't see the deep part of the ditch to the right, covered in grassy/straw weeds. Front tire caught, went down, got stuck(?), and my back wheel went over the front wheel, throwing me head- & right-hand-first into the gravel ditch, with my bike falling on me a split second later.

Needless to say, I'm pretty thoroughly scraped up, but it was kinda fun.
