I recently had one of my photos selected for a recent National Geographic assignment called “Underwater Beauty”. I was surprised and honored to be selected out of 5,700+ submissions. Hopefully the link below works. Mine is the Pygmy Seahorse ;)

To have the sea fan polyps open with the Pygmy seahorse is very rare! A truly magical shot! Phenomenal!
