140. Moray with cleaners and spoilsport


Subject: An Undulated Moray Eel (Gymnothorax undulatus) gets a clean-up by Clear Cleaner Shrimps (Urocaridella antonbruunii). These little cleaners appear to be quite annoying for the host, certainly when the shrimps are present in great numbers.

Technique: While filming this moray eel, a juvenile fish swam constantly in front of the camera, probably attracted by my video lights. Instead of allowing it to ruin my shot I tried to use this spoilsport to my advantage by giving it a small role at the end of the video.
