Maomao Arch

January 19, 2020

The next dive of the day took us to Maomao Arch.

I love the look and temperment of the scorpionfish. There really very relaxed.


I noticed this pattern a number of times while diving on Poor Knights. A small fish being pursued persistently by many other fish. No real surprise what's going on here. It's a female scarlet wrasse being courted by many other wrasse.

During our 3 minute safety stop there were plenty of large maomao around to keep us entertained.
