[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Taken on a check dive in the wreck of the Dunraven. It is an upturned wreck and has many hiding places for aquatic life. This moray is about 8` long and has nestled itself in among the iron ribs of the hull. Shot was taken purely as reflex as I did not want to antagonize it by flashing a torch at it (have you seen the size of moray's teeth!)
