I just love taking pictures, and here in Raja Ampat Indonesia I got to play with my macro lens a lot. Now you would think that these pygmy seahorses would be easy to spot. But nooooo… They are really small and masters of disguise.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAOne of the first times that I almost saw them, one of or guides helped me out. On he dive site Andiamo he showed me a sea fan and signalled that 6 pygmy seahorses where in there. He had to run as he was guiding a group and so was I. So I checked it out, my god I did not even see one… hahahahahahaha…. Took me a bit of time and some practice to spot m and got it down now.

And thanks to Gee, one of our dive guides here on SY Indo Siren, I got a chance to have a proper photo shoot with these Denise’s Pygmy Seahorses.

Check m out… And note that more are to come šŸ˜‰

Hugs and bubbles, Anke
