|West Maui at Dawn, 6 x 8 oil|
This little coral mound houses a colony of Hawaiian Dascyllus. They gather in a range of sizes, from the two-inch almost-black adults to younger fish with white on their dusky sides, to tiny disks the size of my pinky fingernail, that are mostly fin. These itty-bitties have a neon-blue stripe across their nose. They all flutter in and out of the coral like Nemo in his anemone home.
