Underwater Maui…

This fish makes its home in deep water within the branches of black coral.They are relatively rare and difficult to photograph since they are camera shy. Every time the flash goes off, the Long nose hawkfish would dart to a new spot in the black coral. This one was found 110 feet underwater at the “Apartments”, a relatively shallow series of ledges in the channel between Molokini Crater and the island of Maui.
