Butterflyfish love! (pairing)

I love butterflyfish (Chaetodontidae) as they come in so many colours and patterns. I try to capture a photo of every species I see on holiday. Vilamendhoo seemed to have the largest variety of butterflyfish out of all the Maldivian islands I have visited and I think I counted 27 species. I love the fact most species live in pairs. Many species pair for life and are seen swimming together in perfect synchronisation.  It just shows how happy they are! Very rarely you get to see small shoals of butterflyfish and this is great to see.

Enjoy some of the pictures I have captured over the years 🙂
