Dear Jens, I just read some of the comments on this picture. I can still think that with the size and teeth on this moray, I will be very very careful, much more careful than you might believe!!!! In Hawaii, a few years back I was swimming with a bag of fish food that started to leak, in seconds I was surrounded by dozens of mid sized fishes. I was really scarred! you should have seen how quickly I made it to the shore. Now going back to your picture: really nice shot and capture. This picture is so clear. The lighting is so perfect. Have you used a flash? I am trying to imagine what a fish like this will do when a bright light hits it!!!! This picture gets a definite LIKE.

Jens ||¿Æ¬ŒΞЩ|| Germ… on October 9, 2011

Hey Antoine, Ive heard there are sharks in the waters around Hawaii. No risk, no fun?? I would not go into the water with a bag full of leaking food :-) Moray eels are hunters and nocturnal, you always have to take care and not to came to close. But what meens _close_? Im afraid of these teeths, believe me. Fortunately moray eels in Egypt are used to divers. I used the flash, but the camera was not a professional camera. The flash is not intense. Thanks for your praise and the conversation --- Greetings, JENS
