I used to to take great delight in finding a leafy seadragon for other divers, then watching, waiting and counting how long it took them to separate creature from its environment.
Here in the sea grass you would think that they would be easy to spot compared to the yellow or brown algae. Actually I have been surprised just how long some divers have taken to separate the dragon from the detail.
There must have been at least thirty divers down at Rapid Bay last Sunday. I wonder just how many spotted this beautiful dragon feasting on tiny crustaceans out in the sea grass?
