Blackstripe Coris

A Blackstripe Coris swims in the waters off Hawaii

The Blackstripe Coris is known as Hilu in Hawaii. According to legend, two gods who were brothers appeared as Hilus. One got caught and ended up on a grill, but the other took human form, rescued his brother, and returned him to the ocean. However, the stripes from the grill remained and can still be seen on the Hilu to this day.

      Thanks for your kind words. I continue to enjoy doing the blog, though I’ve been busy lately and haven’t been taking as many photos or getting out and about as much. Hopefully that will change soon.
