JUMP SCARE

Limited Edition

"Jump Scare" was taken in Anilao, in the Philippines, and is a photo of a Grey-Faced (also White-Eyed) Moray Eel. I found this moray in a hole with a fellow Green Moray while looking to take photos of animal behavior. After taking photos of the green moray for around 20 minutes, the grey faced moray seemed to decide that it was his turn to be the star, and pushed his counterpart out of the way. While this photo may look like the eel is jumping out of his hole, about to attack, it was actually very stationary, and in the middle of a quick yawn.
