This speckled moray eel was photographed in the Bahamas. He was in a small coral head and swam quickly to the other side. I did two kicks with my flippers and flew weightlessly over to the other side. I could see him swimming as I passed over him but he didn't see me. As I got to the other side I turned around and decended to the sand at the edge of the coral. I touched down softly with my camera ready just in time for him to look out the other side and I got this shot. This was taken with a nikon n90s with an Iklite housing and a strobe.
