The charming Exquisite Butterflyfish

The Exquisite Butterflyfish is one of my favorite fish. I have seen them many times in the Red Sea.

Usually two fish swim together.

This fish is also called blacktail butterflyfish (in latin Chaetodon austriacus). It is native to the western Indian Ocean but has reached the Mediterranean Sea as a migrant through the Suez Canal.

Here is one of the lovely closeup photos I managed to capture in Sahl Hasheesh, in the Red Sea.

The Exquisite Butterflyfish Are So Charming. Underwater photography from Sahl Hasheesh. The Red Sea underwater world is beautiful and exotic.

Big Eye Emperor fish

Big Eye Emperor (Monotaxis Grandoculis) can reach a length of 60 cm, which is about 23 inches.

Fully grown adults have a large rounded head, thick lips, silver grey body with dark scale margins, and fins with red margins. 

Some species can rapidly change their colour. There are eleven species of the Lethrinidae dynasty in the Red Sea.

I have seen and photographed this exciting fish only a few times in the Red Sea.

The Threadfin Butterflyfish is a reef-associated fish and its does not migrate. Its depth range is 1-35 meters / 3-115 feet. It can be found in several different types of habitats, including corals reefs, inshore waters and rubble covered bottoms with prolific plant and algae growth.

I have seen and photographed this fish many times in the Red Sea.

Great Black-backed Gull (Larus marinus). We have these seagulls around the seashore and out in the archipelago. Here is one watching the scenery standing on a small rock in the sea. A lovely bright summer day in Finland.

Sahl Hasheesh Underwater World

It was exciting to dive into the Red Sea again. Sahl Hasheesh was a new place for us.

Here are a few photos of the underwater world:
