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 :)

I know the name sounds like a terrible attempt at describing the cool little fish you are looking at but sadly "Orange & Black Dragonette" is this guys official name. Kinda lame if you ask me, look at him, he definitely deserves a cooler name, what about calling it a "War Paint" or "Spicy Lips" Drag [...]

Porcelain Anemone Crab Feeding In Space

Lots of divers have seen Porcelain Anemone Crabs before, but few stop to wonder how they feed. Actually most crabs are scavengers, they will hunt at night eating dead or decaying fish and other organic waste they find, but some crabs have developed other ways of feeding to better suit their lifestyl [...]

Disco Lion Fish

I think many photographers, due to their being common, disregard Lion fish as subjects for their photo's, after spending four months diving in the Caribbean where Lion fish abound in un-maintainable numbers, you do get sick and tired of seeing them. Currently or at least when I took this photo I was [...]
