Beautiful. One of my favorite creatures to ever come eye to eye with. Saw these guys while diving in Botany Bay, south of Sydney.

Thanks Frank yes they are one of the most beautiful creatures to see in their natural habitat. Flinders Pier in Victoria is a good spot for seeing them on a dive as it is a haven for them

great shot, but is it real??

yes it is a real creature and that shot is close to the raw shot with just a bit of scatter removed, I had to get early in the morning to get the shot, the sea is a species that in found in temperate Australian waters only and is a cousin to the sea horse just bigger
