Yes, they are quite beautiful, and fun to photograph. Both this Lagoon Triggerfish, and the Reef Triggerfish (Humuhumunukunukuapua'a). A third triggerfish, the Lei Triggerfish (AKA Bursa or Scythe Triggerfish) is also quite common and similar in size--but more drab in appearance.

I love these triggerfishes and also the humuhumu..etc. I went to Maui and Molokai a few years ago, it was awesome to dive there :-)
