Goldentail Moray Eel
Photographer: jim catlin
Location: Sunset house reef, Grand Cayman
Lighting was all important for this shot, giving the impression the moray was looming from the darkness. A black background is also the perfect compliment for its beautiful golden color. I waited until the moray opened its mouth to breath to snap the shot.
