A pygmy seahorse (Hippocampinae denise) on a gorgonia (Melithaea spp.), shortly before it gets discamouflaged by the underwater photographer Mihály Bobály.

The photo was taken in a depth of 30 m just below the legendary Liberty Wreck in Tulamben where three(!) different species of pygmy seahorses could be discovered already.
