[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Lined Seahorse
Hippocampus erectus

Seahorses are poor swimmers and depend on their camouflage both to hide from enemies and conceal themselves from prey. They blend so well into their background that the casual observer rarely sees them. Seahorses are able to grab hold of plants with their tails to anchor themselves. Male seahorses carry the eggs around in a pouch on their bodies, caring for them until they hatch.

No reflect, lighting is difficult!but the subjet is sharp and clear. Good choice for your first share

Very interesting opening photo Nicolas!
Nice creatures you've captured here. Details are very good and the colours beautiful. I like also the POV and composition.
WELL DONE and welcome to TN :-)
