Photo Friday – ‘Difficult Shot’

This week’s Photo Friday entry: ‘Difficult Shot’

This pregnant pygmy seahorse was the first one I’d ever seen. It was tricky for me because he (yes he, the fathers have the babies!) was only 1 cm high and at 18 meters down his camouflage was so good I could hardly see where he was on the red fan. Also sea horses have a tendency of turning away their heads. I had to have perfect buoyancy because I could not lay on the reef (obviously). Oh, and I was using someone else’s camera (since I’d flooded mine earlier in the week). All in all I was pleased with the result 🙂
