Sharing moments in time…

Chasing a boxfish (?)


At least I think that is what this is.  I played tag with this guy for several minutes around a sea fan sticking out from the reef wall.  He is much smaller than he appears in this photo – probably only about an inch long.  He kept ducking behind parts of the fan and when I would move to get a clear shot, he would just swim through an opening to the other side of the fan – something I obviously couldn’t do.  In any case, i was able to get this shot which highlights the big bug eyes of this cute little gem.

    • Yep – sometimes he hovers with them and then all of a sudden, he’s off in a shot!

    • Madhu – they are always fun to chase around – mostly without result. I was glad that this one worked!
