Hippocampus whitei


I took a day to dive one of the groins and a couple of the ocean baths along the Grand Parade in Botany Bay. I was able to find a number of nudibranchs and fish, but the stand-out was this lone White's Seahorse on the Scarborough St Baths net. Sitting right at the bottom of the net on the sand line. I scoured the full length of this net and the net of the main baths in Brighton-Le-Sands, but this has been the only one i've found. There are other nets and groins worth exploring.
