Taken in very strong current. I took 2 shots before my strobe arms folded back flat from the force. The Barracuda hovered around me effortlessly as I clung on like a flag, trying to take this shot!

"Lembeh Seadragon" Taken in Lembeh mid Dec this year. At the time photo was taken, perhaps only 500 people have seen this new species of Hippocampus (Pygmy seahorse) with their own eyes. Not many photos available.
