Photo Friday: Season of Sun

Manado Sunrise BlennyWatcher.comWe were lamenting leaving home during our favorite season, late spring, until we woke our first morning in Indonesia to the sun rising over Manado Bay. Just around the corner we found little mudskippers, from the goby family. Mudskippers have adapted to life in shallow, muddy areas by breathing through their skin. These occasionally made a funny little flip, presumably to wet their skin for protection from the very hot sun.

Mudskippers breathe out of water, through their skin and “walk” with their pectoral fins.
