Suspended in the milky blue haze of a less than ideal Rapid Bay this leafy seadragon seems unperturbed with my presence.
When I arrived at Rapid Bay for this dive I looked out at the milky gypsum-dust laden water and nearly left for another location.
I am glad I decided to stay and dive here despite less than 2m visibility.
Who needs great visibility when you can get so close to these gorgeous creatures.
