Wildlife photographer Justin Hofman spotted this little guy floating around in the waters of Indonesia. BBC News reached out to him over Facebook to ask about his photo which has since gone viral.
“At first I was so happy to find this cute sea horse all alone but as the tide changed, sea grass and debris started to drift over the reef – and plastic, trash and sewage along with it. The white blobs you see in the background are actually plastic bags.
As the whole thing unfolded, I knew it was an important scene that had to be documented. It was frustrating, disgusting and sad but I had to shoot it.”
