I’m used to seeing tons of turtles in Hawaii, so many that I sometimes get a little jaded. But boy, I’d forgotten how many eels hang out there. Here’s a sampling.
A traditional up close shot of a moray. There are lots of these guys out there. Some quite large.
Dive site: Molokini – Reef’s End. OMD EM5, 12-50mm at 40mm. 1/250th, f/6.3, ISO 200
And here, getting cleaned by some pretty red shrimp. The eel had to really open its mouth wide to allow those (really big) shrimp to get inside. (Sorry, I was watching the action instead of shooting.)
Dive site: Maui – Red Hill. OMD EM5, 12-50mm at 22mm. 1/250th, f/8.0, ISO 200
And a beautiful snowflake eel that I found out free swimming. Here posing with a sea urchin.
Dive site: Maui – Red Hill. OMD EM5, 12-50mm at 34mm. 1/250th, f/8.0, ISO 200
And there were more. A super shy dragon moray that I just couldn’t get a good shot of. Lots more big morays. If you like eels, this is a good spot.
