Two Butterfly Fish Swim Around Brain Coral

I was close to the end of my dive, just hanging in shallow water burning off nitrogen...

Might as well fire off a few more shots while doing my safety stop...

I didn't even notice the two Butterfly Fish when I took the photo...I just liked the contours of the brain coral, and was concentrating on that when I took the photo...

Stunning. Love the colors too. Isn't it great to get home and find that something extra in your photo?

After that last photo (I'm going backwards) of the eel, I thought for a moment that this was another strange creature. Those little butterfly fish looked like they might be eyeballs, the way they're placed evenly above the coral.

A little serendipity going on everywhere, it seems like! Beautiful!
