Phyllopteryx taeniolatus, also known as the weedy seadragon or common seadragon, is a marine fish related to the seahorse. It is the only member of the genus Phyllopteryx. Adult weedy seadragons are a reddish colour, with yellow and purple markings; they have small leaf-like appendages that provide camouflage and a number of short spines for protection. Males have narrower bodies and are darker than females. Seadragons have a long dorsal fin along the back and small pectoral fins on either side of the neck, which provide balance. Weedy seadragons can reach 45 cm in length. The weedy seadragon is the marine emblem of the Australian State of Victoria. (From Wikipedia)

Perfectly executed image of the marine aquarium. Fish called seahorse is very beautiful, and it has a shape like creature from another galaxy. Wonderful colors and excellent image quality.

Way before you were born, the late french writer Jules Verne wrote Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea, a sci-fi novel describing by-then ways of life aboard and outside a submarine and also the many strange creatures encountered!!
Spectacular depiction without diffraction.

You're showing a different one this time:)! I like it! It's not a very easy shot, but you got a perfect sharpness. The quality is very good and that blue background is great!

An amazing small creature, Eleu.
Fine capture in the aquarium, with special light upon.
Purple tone enhanced it's beauty.
Enjoy a nice weekend,
