Threadfin Butterflyfish

Threadfin Butterflyfish, Chaetodon auriga, Queen's Surf, Hawaii. I finally made it to the beach and the sunburn proves it, in spite of the SPF30 suntan lotion. I suppose the water washes it off after a while. The water was a bit nippy for Hawaii, but then it is January. It was nice enough for me to stay in for about 2 hours before my fingers turned into total prunes so perhaps it's really the difference between that warm Hawaiian air and the water temperature that makes getting in always a bit of a jolt. Of course, if you put me in a fish preserve with fish to photograph, I will stay in as long as I can as I chase those finny beauties around with my little canon camera, mostly oblivious to anything but the fish.
