Some pretty fish

Not a lot to say about these other than here are some rather beautiful butterflyfish:
Chaetodon astriacus Chelmon rostratus
Chaetodon semilarvatus
These species tend to hang about the reefs of the indo-pacific (often in mated pairs) and use those beaks to wrangle out food from nooks and crannies in the coral.

Tai - you have such beautiful underwater photos. It must be incredible to enter the undersea world and swim with these lovely creatures.

Thank you for your kind words Pam; I started taking pictures whilst diving to share what I saw with my friends and family and I really enjoy seeing and hearing people's reaction to the amazing fauna of our oceans.
