Solitary Gorgonian Hydroid with Amphipod

This hydroid is not always easy to spot, it is very small and will not always have an amphipod living on it. However, I went diving at twilight determined to find one. My slow methodical swimming across the reef paid off after over an hour. I was again rewarded when my image came out exactly as I had planned.
