    Wow, nice photo, must be sooo tiny. You know what I’m gonna do next? Dive with a magnifying glass so at least I can see these things!

  8. Monica Hutadjulu says:

    Pak Zaki, Raja Ampat has this tiny seahorse too!
    only 2m depth :D but sooooooooooooo difficult to get its photo
    tiny.. super thin.. and always moving.. need magnifying glass
    and a high concentration too! :)

  9. Kaufik Anril says:

    yes it is veryyyy tiny…

  10. Ahmad Zaki says:

    Momon, you forgot to add one more thing - a very LARGE memory card, so you can shoot and shoot until batteries run out, and maybe come up with one good shot! Haha!

  11. Monica Hutadjulu says:

    ah, i forgot that one Pak Zaki!
    of course lah.. at least 1G memory card ;)
    and a fully charged battery too..

  12. Fredi Tansari says:

    I guess I just need a good guide ;) i wouldn’t be able to spot this guy without my guide :)

    its imposibble for my camera to shoot this, the object is smaller than my focusing point, great catch!
