Always in pairs, Butterfly fish flit around the reef feeding on coral polyps. Observing their behavior, it’s easy to see where they get their name. I love seeing these little guys, and in the Caribbean one can find several different species.
I’ve been trying for years to get a great shot of a pair of them as they’re always swimming together, but they move so fast, it’s really tough to get them in the same frame. While I did get both of them in the frame here, I’m still trying to get a great shot…maybe when we go to Belize later this year.
