A healthy coral reef is something to be treasured. This core coral surrounded by colorful fish looks like a garden of blue flowers with butterflies hovering above the blooms. USFWS writes, "Sworls of Montipora aequituberculata, a core coral, attract fish at Jarvis Island National Wildlife Refuge in the Pacific, about 1,300 miles southwest of Honolulu."
