The elegance of seahorses. Seahorses are truly unique, not just because of their unusual shape but also because of their movements and calm behavior.

The seahorse featured in the picture swam from a depth of 20 meters to about 6 meters in a matter of seconds and that was the moment that I had the unforgettable experience of capturing the shot.

Seahorses are in great demand. About 20 million are caught worldwide each year and the species is now threatened by extinction.
