Hawaii #5 - Clown Fish and a story

I am now going to post all the Hawaii pictures over the next few days.
Clown fish are amazing, the way they live with the anemone in a symbiotic relationship.

Back in the early 90s when I was living in Hong Kong, my wife (then girlfriend) went diving in the New Territories. It was her first dive in Hong Kong and she saw this lone clown fish and as the fish saw her and it started dancing around her and in front of her mask, as she says "it was dancing like a butterfly, sting like a bee". As she looked around she was quite saddened when she saw how impacted the marine life was in Hong Kong as there were no other clown fish in the immediate area. She ends the story with the hope that the clown fish finds a mate and it's anemone.

She still tells this story.
