A weird and wonderful Leafy Sea Dragon (phycodurus eques) showing its amazing camouflage. This close relative to the Seahorse is one of a group living at Weymouth Sea Life centre. Unfortunately these critters like very low lighting so I had to crank the ISO up a bit! ;o(

    Wonderful photo of this stunning creature Krys. I think the noise from the high ISO really adds a nice texture effect to the purple back ground.
    I remember seeing these once at an aquarium in Atlanta, GA, and being impressed by their glowing colors … as if they were emitting their own light. You really captured this quality in the photo.

  • Aw thanks, Richard! ;o)
