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.

An over/under of a bluebottle (physalia physalis) I love how the pneumatophore (air bladder) of this bluebottle caught the light from my underwater strobe and lit up like a fluorescent tube!! Amazing!
