I love these little creatures. We have them on our coast and made naturally dyed silk flags for the leafy seadragon festival in Yankalilla, South AUstralia.

That's amazing! I have never seen anything like that before. The photo is perfect - great exposure and tack-sharp which makes it so easy to see all of the details!

What an amazing creature, isn't it? I love seeing the diversity of God's making. - And this is a great shot using low light and through glass.

Bob Crowe said...

What ingenious camouflage. You must have good equipment to get this so sharp.

RedPat said...

Camouflage at its best! Great pic.

He's wonderful! That's how I'd want to be disguised if I were a seahorse!

I love the seahorses and sea dragons JM, the stuff fairy tales and fantasies are made of. Wonderful shot.

I am SO loving on this ocean series you're doing - and this is my favorite picture so far. What an entrancing creature! My imagination says it's "prehistoric meets fantasy land". Beautiful!

strange and magic !

Joan Elizabeth said...

These creatures never cease to amaze me ... so intricate and so well disguised. Even if we were trying to design a bizarre animal I doubt we would come up with something as unique as this.
