IMG_3875 copyThese guys remain a favorite when I dive. I usually see them in very shallow water. I was surprised to see them down at 30 feet. Hey, it’s allowed. I was just thinking with all that neon color, it’s like an advertisement, “Dinner is served.”

Checking up on the name, it appears that surgeonfish are so named because they have sharp protrusions that are used for defense and can inflict severe cuts on an unwary diver. So… handle with care. Ha! They’re not exactly hanging about waiting for me to grab one… not too much danger for me.
