Photo Friday: Mornings

Birdwatching in Paradise
Dawn at Batanta, Indonesia

I’ve started participating in something fun: Photo Friday over at This is my entry for this week’s challenge: Mornings. On a cruise through the Raja Ampat region of Indonesia, the chance to see exotic birds like hornbills and cockatoos got us out of our bunks every day at dawn. Indulging in a little birdwatching before the day’s scuba diving began made for magical mornings.
