Bargibants pygmy seahorse on a red sea fan, Raja Ampat Indonesia. The little guys are tiny! No bigger than a centimetre tall and they have great camouflage (as you can see). You have to have an eagle-eyed guide to find these little fellows and you also have to be careful not to overstress them. They hate the light & turn away from you and too much stress can actually kill them. I’m careful when I take pygmy shots not to over flash the little guy , if I don’t get the shot I want within a few I ask the guide to find me another one or come back the next day once he’s recovered.
