I had seen an article on the giant ocean sunfish, mola mola. It can reach 1200 lbs. This isn’t one of them. But it was one very large fish in the ocean. I don’t have anything in the image to compare scale. Hey, the fish wasn’t hanging around for me. It was just on its way to somewhere else on the reef. It is shaped like a butterfly fish.
Well at the risk of being an exaggerating fisherman, it was about three feet long. Now remember that water magnifies objects, I wear glasses now, and my kids are endlessly amused by my failing vision with age. But I’m here to tell you it was a very large fish. Really! I’d have liked it to be more colorful and to have hung around a little longer.
