Some friday cuteness....

Cos seahorses are simply adorable. This is Hippocampus reidii (I think - they all look kind of similar).

I've complained in the past that these animals are inconvenient to photograph. This caribbean species is not as bad as some others however because a) you sometimes catch them out in the open like this one where they can't hide their faces behind a bit of coral and b) unlike say Hippocampus denise, they are a decent size - perhaps 6-7 inches high.

They still don't particularly like being photographed though so after these two quick shots I left this chap alone to bimble across the seagrass prairie.
