Caption: Diver and sea fan. Sea fans are colonies of tiny coral organisms (polyps) that build hard structures around themselves for protection and support. The diver is looking for pygmy seahorses (Hippocampus bargibanti) living within the sea fan, but they are notoriously difficult to find due to their tiny size (they are no bigger than 2.4 centimetres) and effective camouflage. Photographed off Siamil, Sabah, Malaysia.
