A pair of Ornate Butterflyfish off Kona, Hawaii

These colorful Ornate Butterflyfish (Chaetodon ornatissimus) often travel in pairs, and are a common sight in the coastal waters of Hawaii. I found this pair while snorkeling in a few feet of calm, clear water at Kahalu’u Beach Park, on the Big Island of Hawaii.
