|Captain Cook Pines at Sunrise, 6 x 8|
The little bay at Poipu is mostly rubble, with very little coral in an area protected by rock walls. Rubble means lots of wrasses. Yellow-tailed Coris are my favorite beauties, both adult and juvenile. We find lots of rock movers. I watch one twelve-inch fish move a ten to fifteen pound rock with its mouth, then catch a crab that was living underneath. The crab is a difficult bite to get down. The fish has to turn it in his mouth until it is claws outward. I guess that's what you get for swallowing your food whole.
