We drove 14 hours straight to find the leafy sea dragon. It was worth every minute of the drive. They really are the most incredible fish.  Watching them move so peacefully throughout their habitat is something I'll always remember.

We get some crazy storms on the South Coast, NSW. They move so fast you've got to be on the ball to catch them. This one was just before dark and was all over in minutes!

This little shrimp (hiding in a sea-pen) was pictured using a 105/2.8 micro + 1.4 kenko teleconverter and a +10macromate wet diopter. the use of the diopter allowed me to stay more distant and not to scare it off
