I’ve been trying for some time to get a good photo (better than this one) of the black durgon, but the fish won’t cooperate. I’m fascinated with the iridescent white band that outlines their dorsal and anal fins. But as soon as I approach, they swim away and head into their little crevices in the rocks.I read that they lock themselves in by raising their trigger.
The black durgon also known as black triggerfish has a really cool name in Hawaiian, “humuhumu’ele’ele.”
So until I learn to be sneakier underwater or the until that black durgon that I always seem to find at the Indians in the late afternoon, isn’t paying attention, I’ll have to be satisfied with this photo taken from afar.
