RED-BANDED WRASSE



Taking pictures of fishes while they are swimming is no easy task.

Most often than not, we get fishes turning their tails as we take aim.

The red-banded wrasse is a beautiful fish.

It is commonly seen in locations of mixed corals, as in the photograph.

My reference says, that this specimen 'often follows divers to prey on invertebrates exposed by divers fins'.

Huh?

That's new to me...

Will try to observe them more diligently next time...

Size was about 30 centimeters.

Dive site: Pulau Soyak, Tioman
