Description

Hands up if you like Seahorses, hopefully you like them in the way we scuba divers like them and not in the way the Chinese like them, you know, crushed up in your morning tea. Trust me when I say that dried Seahorse drinks won’t make your willy any stronger.

Back on topic, if you are a fan of the every mysterious Seahorse, then here is one that we have started to find very regularly on our go to beach dive site, Kata Beach. We dive the beach quite often because the access is easy and it’s cheaper, plus we can do 120 minutes on a single tank and not worry about dive time or other groups. This lets us explore the area and with that exploration has come a treasure trove of Seahorses all over the beach dive area.

This Seahorse is a Hedgehog, I truly have no idea why they called it that, but they did and we just have to deal with it. But it is cool to see something other than the everyday Tigertail Seahorse that is common to Phuket and Thailand dive sites. It took us a while to ID these properly as we were certainly not expert Seahorse ID specialists before, but after many dives and many Seahorses found, the differences do start to become a little easier to see.

If you want to learn more about Seahorse identification here is an awesome page with helpful Seahorse guide books that you can download completely free of charge and I highly recommend if you like photographing Seahorses that you get the PDF guide book, it’s super helpful.

Some dives we are literally ignoring Seahorse on Kata Beach because we find so many of them, so if you really want to see more Seahorse, book a dive at Kata Beach!

The Latin name for this type of Seahorse is Hippocampus Spinossissimus, common name is Hedgehog Seahorse.

Sometimes you just say f$%k it with photography, you might have spent 30 minutes on a single subject and you know it's not working. Current, muck, sand, air, shitty divers & of course faulty equipment can all cause a shot not to work right, I was having one of those days trying to get a photo of an [...]

Porcelain Anemone Crab Feeding In Space

Lots of divers have seen Porcelain Anemone Crabs before, but few stop to wonder how they feed. Actually most crabs are scavengers, they will hunt at night eating dead or decaying fish and other organic waste they find, but some crabs have developed other ways of feeding to better suit their lifestyl [...]

I've talked many times about the difficulty in using large video lights in conjunction with getting photos of Synathiformes, a fancy name for Sea Horses & their relatives. They really don't like bright lights! So how do you get shots like this without a strobe or two? If you have had experience shin [...]

When cuttlefish are extremely small, only a 10 - 15cm across they have a habit of coming to the reef or sandy area, making small holes in the ground in which they sit, then camouflaging themselves to the surrounding environment not only by color, but also by texture. The most amazing part of this be [...]
