I always try to photograph angelfish. My image inventory probably has more angelfish photos than any other group. They are the most colorful and beautiful animals on the reef, in my opinion. Some are very shy, like Rock Beauties. Others have varying degrees of aloofness, depending on the conditions and circumstances. The best spots for angels I’ve seen are the deeper parts of Molasses and French reefs, since that is also the place we find the highest population and variety of sponges. The largest individual specimens of any angel species I have seen have been on the deep reefs, effortlessly cruising among the barrel and vase sponges.
