Would be honored if you kept this thread alive, obviously you have much to share, give it a thought/ change the name if you want I don’t mind. But a lot of people seem to enjoy this thread and with me only having two trips left I won’t behaving fresh content till AprilToday we changed to a new island (Bora Bora), but here a few shots and videos that I took yesterday at a motou in Moorea.
First up, a moorish idol getting a cleaning from a cleaner wrasse. There were 2 other wrasses doing cleaning as well, the other 2 were very pretty, half yellow and purple. They had a regular garage setup with all the locals stopping in as they swam by.
The fish in this area are not afraid of people as they get fed my the resort staff. Probably the reason I was able to get a video of a moorish idol without chasing him around and never getting close. But, the side effect is they beg like dogs. Coming right up to you and expecting a treat.
Here is a wrasse giving me puppy eyes. After several minutes he figured out I was not the one giving out food. It was tough keeping him on screen because he liked to be 6" from me, and kept circling me or swimming through my legs.
Here are some other shots including the begging wrasses and a butterfly that was also begging.
The moorish idols did not beg, though that would have been funny to see.
