102. Yellowmargin Moray Eels (Gymnothorax flavimarginatus)



Subject: This pair of Yellowmargin Moray Eels (Gymnothorax flavimarginatus) reminds me of Statler and Waldorf, the pair of elderly men heckling the Muppet Show’s cast and their performances from their balcony seats. These nocturnal hunters of crustaceans and octopus are widespread ranging from East Africa in the Indian Ocean all the way to Panama’s Pacific coast in Central America.

Technique: Although this shot was steady, the moray eels moved up and down in the image, so I tried to center them as much as possible. The letterbox template and keyframes made it possible to keep the heads of the morays in the middle of the frame by moving the image up and down behind the two black bars.
