10-10-2010 Pueo chasing 1D67 out of her resting spot:

and then Pueo harrasing Rocket Girl (same time and place):

turtle, opted to move off.

4-20-2017 again Barnacle Billie swims past Rocket Girl (no face to face) and then rests nearby:

And another pass of Billie by Rocket on 5-5-2017:

Since Rocket Girl and Barnacle Billie are often resting within 20' of each other, perhaps they forgo the meet and greet.
