Solitary Islands

 

Imperial Angelfish Scorpionfish fighting

This juvenile Imperial Angelfish was photographed at South Solitary Island in january 2008.

I saw one at North Solitary in Feb 2012.

Two Scorpionfish are doing battle for territorial rights. These Red Rock 'Cod's' live for a very long time.

Anglerfish at Split Solitary Island in January 2008. This extremely well camouflaged Anglerfish was paired with the White Angler opposite. They could be a breeding pair. I presume January is breeding season and babies are born later summer.
