Eels are always fun... and there were a lot of them. One of the largest green Morays I have ever seen too... after my battery died for the day, lol!

The white/black one (#2) was out swimming free.... and actually swam between my legs, brushing up again my leg. I did hold still, so as not to startle it. They are usually pretty docile, but can bite when they need to.

Holy crap! These are terrific shots, Charlie. They may be fairly docile, but I don't like the look of those teeth. :pale: The shots would never have happened from my hands...a simple, "Hi" and "Bye" while swimming away would have done it for me...

:lol:

I stayed around 12" away.. closer than that, and they start backing into their holes... some a little closer... some a little farther. I had one big Green Moray actually nudging the camera... never did get a good shot of him! lol!
