What a beautiful portrait of this most unusual sea creature. Aside from being aesthetically pleasing and technically well done, your shot also appears to have captured the life of this little animal, the life in it’s eyes. Bravo!
I love this cute little seadragon. What marvelous detail!
Seriously interesting marine life. Color and detail are terrific.
It seems to glow…
What an amazing little critter. Just amazed to see all the animals that we don’t normally get to see. Goes to show we need to protect them as we do with our own life.
This is pipe fish/sea horse family does the male carry the eggs?
What a colorful capture. He is looking right at you. I love this.
Yet another truly amazing photograph, leaving me in awe and wonder at Mother Nature , all of this planet’s mysterious places and creatures and convinced that the day I stumbled onto the EarthShots website was on of the luckiest , so far.
A magnificent little creature you’ve captured there!! Nature never ceases to amaze me!!
Simply amazing! Talk about a soul picture!
He is lovely! I never heard of it before. Beautiful picture. It is now my wallpaper!
Absolutely love this photo! Looks like a Chihuly piece…..the guy that does the fabulous, imaginative, comtemporary glass blowing. This would be either art imitating nature or nature imitating art!
A lovely shot! The little guy does indeed appear to be staring right at you, and he seems full of personality. Grats!
Misterious world of deep oceans. Nice shot.
Aren’t they just gorgeous! Excellent shot.
fantastic. Gorgeous shot.

I’ve never seen anything like this! Fantastic!
Thanks all! Yes, the male of the species carries the eggs. Quite a rare find.
Excellent capture of this odd little marine life form.
With a compliment very very very cool, fantastica foto forse in assoluto quella che mi ha affascinato di più da quando seguo questo sito
