5th Place Novice Macro

"Chestnut Moray"


The Story: Back in Bonaire for the second time, we were able to finally dive Salt Pier. This photograph was taken was the second day we dove Salt Pier- so many little critters to see the first time we decided to go back the very next day. I was actually taking pictures of a very brazen Spotted Cleaner Shrimp when I saw something move in the periphery- I glanced to the left and this was the first time I had every seen this beautiful species of moray eel. Immediately, I turned my attention to the eel and was able to take a few shots before he disappeared back into the coral head. I used Lightroom to clean up the backscatter and make this amazing moray the star of the show.
