Weekly Photo Challenge – Pure

Juvenile Drum Fish

Juvenile Drum Fish

Pure delight. Pure beauty. Pure innocence. This little juvenile drum fish is one of those symbols of young life on the reef. They’re fairly rare, spend most of their time flitting around in small confined places under overhangs on the reef, and they live in these small confined places because it’s relatively safe there for young fish.

Juvenile drums are relatively hard to photograph because they are always moving – quickly – so it was pure delight for me to be able to capture a shot of this little one during our trip to Roatan, Honduras this past week.

      Hi Dawn! Thank you so much! It was a great trip and I got lots of shots including several of green turtles that we encountered on our last dive of the trip. The camera gear performed perfectly and it was a lot of fun. Hey, are you coming out this fall when Little Man returns to DU?
