Title: The Strange Couple


During a night dive at around midnight with a full moon, I found this pair of sea horses belonging to two different species, one Hyppocampus camuso and other, Hyppocampus guttulatus, who swam in the shallow holding each other by the tail. The scene that photographed was something majestic, a magic only enhanced by the beauty of the site and the evening's full moon.
