Default {PHOTO} Something different - The Eel

I was down at my favourite sunset spot tonight and walking on a small
concrete wall and noticed something orange moving in the water.
On closer look it was an eel, I tried getting a shot but it was already
too dark, tried on board flash but too much water reflection. I went
back to the car and got the sigma flash and the polarised lens.

Got about 15 shots many not good with the ripples distorting his head.

These are the two best I captured

It's amazing that most of the fish know enough to stay away.



And they say fish have a 3 second memory. They probably stir this guy up
every night
