In the pink

A Pinktail Triggerfish in the waters off Hawaii

This week’s Sunday Stills Monthly Color Challenge is ‘Pink.’ See more responses here.

The top photo is an appropriately named Pinktail Triggerfish. Below, we have a Gold Dust Day Gecko cleaning the windows, a pink hibiscus fronting an orange tree, and an Hawaiian Stilt with an itch.

    All lovely pinks – the gecko shot shows excellent timing. The clarity of the outline and the poise of the Pinktail Triggerfish makes it look almost look like a decal stuck onto a glass pane.

      The gecko was fortuitous, rather than great timing on my part, but I was glad to get the shot. The triggerfish was all about its proximity to me, the distance to the background, and the lighting.

    Great photos. I am missing Hawaii! I don’t know that I’ve seen a pink-tailed triggerfish, but now I will be on the lookout for one next time I am snorkeling there (and hopefully, it will be as clear of a shot as yours).

        They do seem to look bemused. 🤣 I don’t think very many fish in Oahu are skittish where we went snorkeling, but that’s because I went to popular areas. Would be nice not to be a tourist. 😎

            I was thinking it also had to do with the fact that tourists used to feed the fish, especially in Hanauma Bay. One of my neighbors told me to bring peas and feed them so I could get more fish to come over. I educated her quickly. 🤦🏼‍♀️
