    What is #3? that thing looks like it would eat you. Love #4 the diver in the back ground is a great I like the depth it adds to the shot.

    here are two more eel pics I got from that dive. the first one is the same eel, and the second one is another moray that we saw on that dive.

    number 3 is spectacular. great great capture.
    still, sometimes you just can't help missing the good old times when you'd have used an analog camera with a good slide film. those colours just can't be beaten but still, that's a great job you've done there.
    thses make me wish i wasn't so useless in the water!

    You're lucky, much more interesting than the green fish we have to look at while diving the lakes in Minnesota!

    Wow, these are amazing! If I wasn't terrified of animals such as the Moray Eel, I'd love to photograph underwater one day. I blame Shark Week for my fear of the ocean.

    Anyhow, amazing pics. Awesome angles

    thanks for all the comments guys!

    I think the best thing about #3 is the little shrimps that are on the right side of the eel. I didn't even see them until I got back and started sorting through the pictures on my laptop. They must just clean up the leftovers when the eel grabs a meal!

    I am very not scared of eels... The more I dive, the more I realize that everything down there is more scared of me than I am of it... except I'm still really scared of bull sharks... mostly due to shark week.

    :lol:

    I hear ya, shark week makes me regain my fear every time.

    Especially since bull sharks have been sighted as far up the river as Illinois with possible sightings in Minnesota.
