Description

I’m a big fan of Moray Eels, they always look like they are trying to tell a really bad joke or laughing maniacally at one. This one is called a White Eyed Moray, for obvious reasons, they don’t get very big in most cases, and love to play/hunt inside the green cup and fan corals that abound on the reefs, sometimes you can find 3 or 4 of them in the same tree of cup corals.

The oddest thing about White Eyed Morays, for me, was always the fact that when reviewing the photos I’d taken of them, their eyes or mostly the white ring was always blurry, not out of focus, just blurred, it ruined quite a lot of nice photos of White Eyed Morays that I’d taken, I’ve since learned how to angle the light on them to prevent this blurring around the eye, I assume it has something to do with their eye being slightly reflective and distorting the powerful lights of my dive torches.

Thankfully in this photo the eye is perfectly non blurry and I caught him sticking his head out of the corals with his mouth open, I find this image quite striking with the green Cup coral to contrast the Moray’s drab greys, I also like the background of more corals fading out into obscurity, a little bit like an underwater forest.

The Juvenile Yellow Box Fish

When I showed this photo to a few photographer friends on the boat I was on, not long after I'd taken it, I simply got the same response from each one of them, 'OMG, I hate these fish', or something with a few more swear words mixed in. Seriously, they are painful fish to get a good photo of, timid, [...]

Another great dive, another great find. Hairy Frog Fish, also know as a Striped or Striated or frogfish, Latin name (Antennarius striatus). These guys are not easy to find, I've seen one, ever, this one. Although he is not as hairy as they can get it was still a special moment for me under the water [...]

Giant & Yellow Etched Morays Sharing A Hole

Sharing Space The Moray Way

When I took this photo I immediately labelled it 'why can't we all just get along' and posted it to Facebook. It was actually one of my most popular photos, I think when you capture something unique under the water like these two viscous predators sharing a small space and getting along, you have to [...]

Spooky Halloween Hermit Crab

If you have never seen a Halloween Hermit Crab before don't be too surprised, I've only ever seen them very far up into Myanmar, they definitely don't seem to be in Phuket waters or elsewhere I've traveled, but it wouldn't surprise me to find out they are a dime a dozen somewhere else in the world.
