Female Bird Wrasse

This was at Kahalu'u Beach - the fish seem very tame.  This is a smaller fish and
didn't school.

Species: Gomphosus varius (birdfish, bird wrasse)

Schooling Fish

Coming, going, you tell me - these fish (like me) were being dragged in the current and (unlike me) stopping
on each ebb to chew one whatever was on the rocks.

Boxfish Swimming By

There are a fair number of Boxfish at Kahalu'u Beach and they are so curious that
they seem agressive - they will follow the humans around.

Yellow Tang's Feeding

There are a few types of coral.  The brain coral is fun but there is also a rounder coral that is common.
Where bare rock is exposed sea urchins are often present.

was much more interesting and the water was clearer.
