....and you might be able to make out Hippocampus denise aka Denise's pygmy seahorse aka the smallest seahorse in the world.


H. denise is about the size of a grain of rice and so noticeably smaller than H. barbiganti, the more commonly seen pygmy which I blogged about in February. I'll be blogging about it again in the future having got some slightly better shots of this species in October.


Unfortunately although I had great looks at both species I only saw denise when my strobe gun was failing hence the weird lighting above. They really are orange though.
