When Sailfins Shoal

RCA_1645-EditThis is my second post about Zebrasoma desjardinii, a fish that is quite a stunner in captivity, but is even more impressive in the wild, where it can demonstrate its natural behavior; in this case, coming together into a large shoal. I spotted this shoal while exploring a series of channels in a shallow reef system.  Not a fish that tends to spend much time in enclosed environments, I think this shoal had accidentally found its way into the network of cracks and fissures and was eager to be back on the open reef. RCA_1641Normally the fish, whether shoaling or not, stay clear of divers, but these fish just sped past me, intent on getting back into the light, a state of affairs I was happy to exploit as I fired of a series of shots. RCA_1643Sadly, the weather had been very poor and there were a lot of particulates in the water, so the images aren’t as clean as I would have preferred, but that’s just the way of things.
