This week yet again I’m featuring my own picture and still waiting for all participants willing to have their photograph hosted on my Friday Lens Affair Series which I intend as an eternal and very important part of my blog! This photo of leafy sea dragon is very dear to my heart. I’m not sure how to explain it. Photographies from last, this and next week make me very sentimental. All of them for different reasons I guess!
Picture Story: Leafy sea dragon, Monterey, USA
I photographed this amazing creature in Monterey Aquarium back in June of 2010 during my two-months long road trip in the West Coast. Which I managed without having a driving license. Ha ha ha.
No, no, do not worry, I haven’t been breaking law! My partner from that period, also known as Mr Wrong, did the job! :) On the beginning I felt a bit guilty for being such a Princess but I quickly forgot about it while admiring all those beautiful views when we drove Highway 1 in Mustang convertible!
Maybe sounds like a cliche, but what can I do, we Europeans think it is cool! :)
It is a leafy sea dragon, apparently kind of a seahorse. Found it in ‘The Secret Lives of Seahorses’ exhibition. I couldn’t take my eyes away from it, the normal seahorses which I adore as well suddenly seemed so common.
As a devoted diver I always wanted and still want to see seahorse live while diving. It is not easy and you have to be lucky, but as I’m also known as The Luckiest Girl in the World, I’m sure I will meet them sooner than later! Seeing leafy sea dragon will be just like a cherry on the cake!
