This tiny sea horse is hidden in the branches of the sea fans. In Pemuteran (Bali), we see each dive! I do not get tired of photographing them ...

No time tonight to tell you through the menu my arrival at Pemuteran nor my last dives ... But I feel that I will tap here a few days, so much the atmosphere is peaceful and the underwater scenery sumptuous!

Here, no street vendors stalkers. People behave normally, the beach is beautiful, quiet ...

I'm leaving you right, tonight, to wait, two images ofseahorses Pygmies, this tiny sea horse, as big as the nail of the little finger, which lives in the branches of the sea fans, with which it merges, thanks to its bumpy body.

The pygmy hyppocampus is particularly shy and difficult to spot among the gorgonian branches. (Pemuteran, Bali, Indonesia, July 2008.)

I became a friend of the pygmy seahorses! There is one for every dive! ! !

Not easy to draw the portrait, with my little compact camera, but I do not get tired of photographing them lovingly ...

  1. Ah! Pemuteran, one of those places you have the secret of, and I'm glad for you.
    The places from here, you and I know them ... almost by heart, and no seahorse!

    Besitos, Lydie. 😉

  2. Libération d’Ingrid Bétancourt par l’armée colombienne, ainsi que 14 autres otages! Lydie. 🙂 🙂 🙂

  3. It is by chance that I came across your stories and your very pretty picture.
    Enraptured by a dive in your company, I invite you now to come to discover my universe ... full of seahorses!
    You're lucky, bargibanti seahorses (pictured here) are rare ... to see for uninitiated eyes!
    Good luck and congratulations for this very nice site!

    Fantastic, your site! I think for a moment to open a section of links dedicated to wildlife and underwater image ... I carefully keep the address of your blog Hippo and Co under the elbow.
    😉

    I am delighted to know thanks to you the little name of this seahorse-pygmy. In Bali (in Pemuteran, and then in Tulamben-Amed), I have been lucky to meet this species several times, with these small bumps on the body that mimic the protuberances of the sea fans. Yes, I know, I'm a little lucky ...
    😀

  5. Here I am back on your site ...
    Si tu viens sur mon blog la semaine prochaine… tu découvriras les dernières découvertes en matière d’hippocampes pygmées… Peut être auras tu la chance de les rencontrer eux aussi 😉
    If so, I'm taking your photos ... because for now, they are rare!
    See you soon, I hope…
