The beautiful weedy sea dragon is endemic to the temperate waters of Australia. Unbelievably, I found a sea dragon on the sand in Newcastle a few years back (sadly he had died) – even still, it was as though I had stumbled upon a mythical creature. I was studying botanical drawing, and so carefully wrapped him up and carried him home. I captured what I could of his glorious colour as soon as I got back.

How gorgeous is their whimsical dance…
