Underwater Butterflies

Taking a Stroll

Isn't that water gorgeous?

These are just a couple of raccoon butterfly fish I happened upon at Airport Beach Reef (a.k.a. Kahekili Beach) in Maui. Despite the appearance of that first shot, there were a lot of fish hanging out here. In fact, the largest schools I saw all week were during this dive. It's amazing how much life can hide in the coral.
