Tough to get a shot of these guys feeding but when they do I think it looks spectacular. Like little fishermen casting their nets. Shot with two strobes, next time I'm going to try side lighting to give some more depth.

I'd love to tell you I planned this shot but I got lucky. However you make your own luck and I sat in front of this ribbon eels hole for ages just shooting as it came into focus. Bit of vignette added in Lightroom and a boost to levels.

This is one of the first photographs where I planned the shot before taking it. I side lit the rhinopias with TTL on one strobe and set the other strobe to 1/8 and put it above the subject.
