Moray Eels in Japan

In between bouts of paperwork (argh), I've been trying to catch up on editing photos from past adventures. Here are a couple of moray eel shots I'm fond of, both taken some time ago in Izu, Japan.

I haven't had a chance to dive in Japan since 2009. If I can swing the time, I'm hoping to get back in the water here later this year to look for more cool critters.
