Alex Tyrrell My first post on Wetpixel Group, so thought I'd start small and work my way up to the big stuff. This is a tiny Pontohi Pygmy Seahorse (Hippocampus pontohi) looking straight into the camera. Anyone that has seen these little fellas before will know how thin they are, as well as cryptic, so I was pleased with this shot. Photo taken in Maratua, Kalimantan, Indonesia in 2008 with Nikon D200, Subal ND20, Nikon 105mm and MacroMate.

Tanya G Burnett Definitely a difficult angle to capture! Nice.

Alex Tyrrell Thanks Tanya G Burnett!

Tanya G Burnett You in PG still?

Alex Tyrrell No I've left the Philippines & Atlantis and am back in Thailand now ready to set up on my own.

Tanya G Burnett Congrats... keep me posted.

Marli Wakeling Great shot. You have left, just when I thought that I would visit. Pity.

David Fleetham Well done!
