F is for Fantastically-colored Fish
My poor attempts at underwater photography do not do justice to the amazing array of colors that I see as I snorkel! If you are lucky enough to take a dip in the Red Sea this summer – in Dahab, Nuweiba, Sharm el Sheikh, Hurghada, or Marsa Alam – be sure to take your mask. You’re likely to see some fantastically-colored fish yourself!
The fish pictured here are:
(along the top, from left to right) – Royal Angel Fish, Pygoplites diacanthus; Bicolor Parrotfish, Cetoscarus bicolor; Threadfin Butterfly Fish, Chaetodon auriga.
(two along the side, from top to bottom) – Arabian Boxfish, Ostracion cyranurus; Crown Butterflyfish, Chaetodon paucifasciatus.
(largest) – Sergeant Majors, Abudefduf saxatilis.
