An image of a weedy sea dragon (Phyllopteryx taeniolatus) I captured in the cold waters around Melbourne. This particular view shows off just how long their tube-like snouts are. Watching them feed is quite amazing because they suck their food into their mouth, like you might suck up something using a straw.

Here is another of my weedy sea dragon images that you might also like to check out
