Leafy Sea Dragon by ewm Leafy Sea Dragon by ewm
It seems that underwater creatures are lacking in my gallery. In most cases the lighting situations aren't too grand for aquariums but I thought I'd give these creatures a chance. These are Leafy Sea Dragons closely related to Sea Horses. Their tank was almost pitch blank and flash was prohibited due to their light sensativity.

Your deviantID should be a picture of your own creation something that is a self portrait representation of yourself. You may not use this as your deviantID.

Great shot! I really like the all-black background.
I was at the Monterey Bay Aquarium this past weekend and they had these lil guys too: [link]

The tank was lit pretty well so it made the shot a little easier... Nice Job :)

AAHHHH! Thank you!! :heart: :love: :glomp:
This is absolutely gorgeous! Where were you able to take this photo? The focus is brilliant. Leafy Sea Dragons are really underappreciated by visitors, from what I see in aquariums, and deserve much more attention, cause they're just beautiful :D It's nice to see someone promote them.

...and THANK YOU again! :heart: :hug: *goes off to start request with beastie*

I took it at a zoo close to here. It was in a dark tank but I used a fast lens and an aperture of f/2 which allowed to to get the fastest shutterspeed possible.
