Every morning, this lined seahorse moved into a damselfish nest, full of baby fish. The parent, guarding the nest, could not see the seahorse through its disguise. The seahorse quietly ate its fill during the day, and then moved back to deeper waters at nightfall. The poor damselfish in the nest launched brave attacks against my camera lens, oblivious to the real threat to its children. Photographed at Sunset Waters Beach Resort, Curacao.


If you have high-speed, check it out in full size to see the poor, doomed, little damselfish fry.
