Your Mission: Photograph a Pygmy Pipefish

Approximately 7cm x 3mm, this tiny, extremely fast-moving Pygmy Pipefish (Corythoichthys sp.) is almost impossible to photograph. Its home is on a rocky outcrop which makes for a perfect camouflage. Just when you think you have it in focus, it's gone. Taken at Two Caves, Cocos (Keeling) Islands, Australia using a Fuji F810, macro lens & strobe.
