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 :)

Hairy Leg Hermit Crab

It may not be the most fascinating critter in the ocean, it certainly is not rare, but the night I found it crawling around on bright yellow polyps I had to stop and see if I could make this remarkably unremarkable crab a little more interesting. It was a relatively simple shot, it was a night di [...]

Robust Ghost Pipe Fish – Kata Beach

Great start to the Phuket diving season especially for our macro hunting. Early good weather has meant no waves and that has meant lots of opportunities for macro photography dives at Kata beach in Phuket. We decided on a Saturday morning dive, nice and early to avoid the idiotic jet ski operator [...]
