The Pygmy Seahorse is said to be the Holy Grail of all macrophotographers. These tiny creatures (ca. 2 cm) reside – perfectly camouflaged – on the polyps of gorgonian corals. Spotting a pygmy seahorse is an achievement in its own right, not to mention taking a photo of it. Sometimes one satisfactory photograph in the portfolio makes a photographer give up further unfair struggle with Mother Nature. Indonesia, North Sulawesi.
