Normally I'm over in the microscope section, but on trip to San Diego last week I stopped by the Birch Aquarium at the Scripps Institution of Oceanography in La Jolla. I photographed one of the most incredible little creatures I have seen. This Sea Dragon is found in the ocean waters of southern Western Australia, South Australia and further east along the coastline of Victoria province. Thet are a protected species. A relative of the sea horse, it moves extremely slowly, drifting with the water current and looking very much like the seaweed surrounding it.
