“OPHELIA READY FOR HAMLET”: BAHAMAS REEF FISH (27)

It’s a couple of years since I originally posted about the various species of HAMLET that inhabit the reefs of the Bahamas. I feel you are (geddit?) ready to see some more of these colourful little fish. Last time out, I worked over the Shakespearean possibilities quite thoroughly so I’ll spare you a repeat (apart from the inevitable title pun). If you really want to revisit the famous Hamlet Cigar ad or hear the theme music (Bach’s Air on a G String, shamelessly ‘borrowed’ by Procol Harum for ‘A Whiter Shade of Pale), you’ll find them HERE. Or just move straight on to 5 related but very different looking Hamlets cruising the Bahamas coral reefs.

  1. I did not know about hamlets, RH, so I found this post very interesting and fun. Melinda’s photos are exquisite, and I got a good laugh out of the pun (your parenthetical “geddit” helped with that).
