It’s easy to see why this fish is called a parrotfish (uhu, in Hawaiian). It’s also good eating on the islands. We saw these specimens at the Maunakea Marketplace in Honolulu’s Chinatown.
Foster Botanical Garden in Honolulu is known for its outstanding collection of tropical trees, including an impressive set of palms. There is also an orchid garden, but we didn’t see many flowers in bloom. Inside the conservatory was another matter. Although not the largest orchid collection I’ve ever come across, there were some beautiful specimens interspersed among plants that are splendid for their leaf patterns and color contrasts.
