Platybelone argalus


Needlefish spotted (look closely) at the Hanauma Bay Nature Preserve on the island of Oahu, Hawaii. This spot is not the best snorkeling spot on Oahu, but it has the greatest biodiversity of any place on the island. We have seen over 100 different species of marine life at this park, over a period of approximately 4.5 years.


These have been the hardest fish for me to photograph, since they always stay at the water's surface!
