I took this in Indonesia on my recent holiday. They are so, so hard to find underwater (and my increasing long sightedness does not help). My dive guide though had eagle eyes and found several for us, and in the end I found "my own" as well. They are only about 1 cm long and live in the fan corals. Once you have seen them, getting a macro shot under water is another challenge. Most of the time bits of the coral obscure the animal or at least make for a busy back ground. I was so lucky with this one.

Good. Interesting subject. Would be better ig it was cropped tighter IMO. Fill the frame with the seahorse.
