My first seahorse ever, such a special sighting! There were a couple of them scattered around the reef, they seemed to enjoy the cooler temperatures at the bottom.

he engine block of the Clan Stuart is above the water line at most times (except spring high tide), which provides a perfect resting point for a few species of seabird. We snuck up on them to take some shots but they were more curious than timid.

Macro shot of a fan worm, a unique kind of worm that lives within a tube and extends their feathery tentacles to filter feed. They are quite skittish and withdraw their tentacles when they sense your presence.
