Watching the unseen

Finding species under water which are well camouflaged is difficult enough when watching out for stone fishes, frog fishes and scorpion fishes. It is getting really difficult when the photo hunt is going for pygmy seahorses. The first picture above from Puerto Galera (Mindoro, Philippines) in March 2007 is showing the gorgonian the pygmy seahorse inhabits; the second 'borrowed' photo is showing how well its color matches the gorgonian and how similar the body tubercles are to the polyps of the gorgonian. If you find pygmy seahorses in the size of 1cm you can consider yourself lucky.
