This critter is a Spotted Sand Perch. They live in the sand under solid pieces of reef. A single dominant male lives with a small harem of female(sounds like to much work to me).
They are happy to sit and watch the world go by!(At last, something I can relate to)

I like the composition of this photo(said the humble photographer) and believe the predominant critters are known as Blue-Green Chromis. They characteristically feed around coral bommies into which they suddenly retreat at the approach of danger(i.e. Me)

A "manage de trois" of Sting Rays. I left before they included me in a
potential "manage de quatre."

Merry Christmas from the Christmas Wrasse.
Now go ahead and unwrap your presents!
  Me, I got a large lump of coal! Sigh!

  The Blacktip Reef shark is named for the characteristic black tips on its dorsal and caudal fins. It has a short, round snout and angled, saw-like teeth. Its white belly and dark back allow it to camouflage with the dim seafloor and the brighter ocean surface.

This Beauty is called a Vagabond Butterflyfish. They feed on algae, anemones, and coral polyps.

This Tahitian critter is called a '3-spot Wrasse.' They  feed on sand and rubble dwelling invertebrates.  Nough said!

These critters are called Humbug Dascyllus. They are found in groups sheltering in the arms of coral heads in shallow lagoons and inshore reef flats. They feed on algae, invertebrates, and zooplankton

This Double Saddle Butterflyfish is fairly common in Tahiti.
It flourishes in the coral rich environment of the central indo-pacific (as do I).

The Maxima Clam is also known as the Small Giant Clam and is one of the most widely recognized species of giant clams. The beauty of its mantle with its rich variety of patterns and vivid colorations makes for a spectacular display.

This striking beauty is called a Lemonpeel Angelfish! It's one of the most eye catching fish on the Tahitian reefs!

This critter is a Speckled Butterflyfish. Common in Tahiti, it is occasionally seen in Hawaii as well. The last one I saw locally was 20 years ago at Hanauma Bay. It feeds on coral polyps, algae and other small invertebrates. Me, I'm sticking with quarter pounders with cheese and a side of fries!

Another weekend, another Tahiti fish.
This critter is called a Sixbar Wrasse and was pretty common in all the islands we visited!

Members of the "Square Gang," a cult like organization whose entry 
requirements include a tattoo of a square on their mid section, mass up 
for a pizza run to the Bay's local take out joint, Reef Pizza. "Alright, 
who wants the algae and sushi New York style with anchovies?"

Sometimes the first step towards forgiveness is realizing the other
person was born an idiot!

If they add any more "cellies" to my cell, I'm gonna complain to the Warden and the ACLU!

You know you're getting old when your contemporaries are talking about the "little blue pill" and it turns out to be nexium!

Help! I've fallen through a "looking glass" into Alt-world and can't 
seem to get out! Sigh!
On a side note: for sale. One used looking glass. Just the thing to make 
sure your Alt right insignia are on correctly!

Geez, talk about two petulant children(er presidents) poking sharp sticks at one another, I'm glad to be a fish. I suppose I could build a bomb shelter out of coral but most of it has died due to global warming. But that's a whole nother story. Sigh!

Where are we heading? Home!
By the time we got to Washington, the "Mooch" had already been fired 
from the White House and the Donald was on a 17 day VaCa. Sigh! Fame is fleeting. The 'Burma Shave' signs 
en-route were interesting though.

Saturday, July 29, 2017

Where are we heading? To the White House!
 With "The Mooch" Scaramucci now in charge,   I heard that there would be a lot of openings for 'soon to be vacant' positions in the Communications office!

Snaggle tooth Arnie muses about the hole he seems to be stuck in. "Rats, 
I shouldn't have eaten  that passing Flounder. I'm so stuffed I can 
hardly move. Sigh."

Since light travels faster than sound, some people appear bright until 
you hear them speak.

If only the White House was even  half as transparent as my tail! Sigh!

I tried getting in touch with my "feminine side" last year but couldn't handle the pay cut!

Saturday, June 03, 2017

Take it from one who is super sensitive to the changes in  water 
temperature. Climate change is REAL! Sigh!

Saturday, May 27, 2017

I went to the Air and Space Museum in Washington, but there was nothing 
there! Sigh!



Saturday, May 13, 2017

I'm interviewing for Director of Coordination in the new White House. Seems they are all over the map relative to getting stories out! I figure my speed will help me keep ahead of the "breaking news." Is my lipstick on straight?

A clear conscience is a sign of a fuzzy memory!
