Camera Critters #14

Camera Critters by Misty Dawn, go here to see who's participating.

The Florida Aquarium in Tampa Florida was a wonderful place to find Camera Critters. I want to share with you three different Sea Horses. These are the common looking ones that are bonding.
Here is a Leafy Sea Dragon. Do you see why?
Here is another Sea Dragon (with no leaves).

Very nice pix, FG! BTW--I think I know both of the sea horses who are bonding.

Now that's interesting! The leafy Sea Dragon is very beautiful and unusual. A very good set of photos.
Have a great weekend.

Oh wow they are AWESOME. I love the Leafy guy. Cute and clever. I love sea horses / sea dragons anyway. Thanks for this. Mine's up but nowhere near as exotic!

Seahorses are the most facinating creatures, you couldn't invent them. Gorgeous images and so unexpected.

Beautiful photos of sea horses. I've only seen the regular looking sea horses but I've never seen a Leafy Sea Dragon in real life. I remember seeing them on TV but I would love to see one up close.

Thank you for visiting my other blog.

thanks for sharing the photos of the seahorses - they are such unusual creatures, and never fail to fascinate

Fish Whisperer said...

Nice shots of the sea horses. I find that when fishing I sort of get into a zen zone, even if there is chatter on the boat I just fish and pit my skills against the fish. On the other hand when I am sooting pictures my vision shifts to seeing everything through the lens. No matter what the subject It becomes a creative outlet. And a very intense focus on the artistic side. Don't know if that makes sense but have a go. Rosie says thanks for the comment. It was her personal best for a GT and the bonus was it swam away healthy and strong. By the way what camera are you using?
Cheers
