Alex Mustard - Posing Pygmy


Pygmy seahorses are renown for being uncooperative subjects. But this one was quite relaxed, standing proud in a fold of the seafan while I took this photo. These seahorses are about 1cm in total length and as thin as an uncooked piece of spaghetti!

Location: Sulawesi, Indonesia
