Aquatic

A greeting on the sea floor at Two Step, Hawaii

This week’s Sunday Stills color challenge theme is ‘Teal or Aqua.’ See more responses here. I’m going underwater for a selection of aquatic aquas.

The top photo shows what happens when divers have too much time on their hands.

Next, we have some Square-spot Goatfishes and a few Orangeband Surgeonfishes meandering over a patch of sand. Then a Bullethead Parrotfish displaying a variety of colors. And a shoal of Hawaiian Silversides going hither and yon over a rocky bottom.

Finally, a couple of Spinner Dolphin photos, where they swam below me over an aqua background.

      Swimming with dolphins is a real highlight for me. It’s been a while now, but there’s always a chance, when I get in the water, that today will be one of those days!

    Underwater teal and aqua, Graham! Fabulous and not something the rest of us see much! Thank you for sharing these gorgeous images. Cool shot of the dolphins. Do you have an app that tells you the names of the fish species? Aloha, as the first image says!

      No app, though I’m sure there are several available. I use a couple of books by John Hoover that contain photos and descriptions of fish and marine invertebrates in Hawaii. Also have a few useful websites bookmarked.
