Leafy Sea Dragon


The Leafy Sea Dragon is the undisputed master of camouflage. As this individual peered into the camera, I was taken aback by the perfectly positioned filaments akin to blades of seaweed. Shortly after the encounter, it disappeared into a nearby forest of algae in the blink of an eye.
