Yes, this image was obtained while Enceladus was indeed in eclipse, illuminated by sunlight reflected first from Saturn's rings then onto the planet and finally onto the moon. Portions of Enceladus are also lit by scattered light from nearby Tethys, Dione, and Rhea, although not as brightly as by Saturn's reflected ringshine.
