Description

Apart from being rare, hard to find & beautiful, the Zebra Moray is also annoyingly bashful, preferring to spend it time hiding from anything even remotely resembling a camera or scuba diver. Here in Phuket, where I found this one, we see them very very rarely, there is no dive site we can conclusively say, yes we will see a Zebra Moray, possibly Shark Point being your best bet to find them if they were high on your list, but by no means a guarantee.

So when found, your next mini ordeal begins, attempting to get a photo of them, they are not free swimming inclined and will almost certainly be buried deep into a hiding place. You can wait all you want for them to move for a better shot, but experience has shown me they are quite happy where they are, so actually in this case you are better off trying to get your light onto them right away and snap a shot.

This one as you can see was deep inside a mushroom coral structure, I had to position my lights quite carefully, in fact the light comes from the left side in this show, falling off on the right to hide anymore of the background being visible. Hopefully One day i will get a chance at seeing these magnificent & beautiful morays out hunting or at least with their head out of the rock :)

Bay 1 Scooter Phuket

So explaining this image is actually slightly sad. The Scooter is in/on a dive site here in Phuket named Bay 1. When I first arrived and started working in Phuket Bay 1 was my absolute favorite dive site. Macro was absolutely amazing, not something you'd expect from a damaged reef area. You would [...]

Orange Banded Sting Fish

Ever heard of a Sting Fish before? To be honest before I found this one, I'd only really ever heard the name mentioned once or twice in my travels and they don't appear in most of your fish ID books either, trust me I looked :) So what the hell makes a Sting Fish interesting enough to be shown he [...]
