One of the more unusual and spectacularly colored fish in the world, this is an adult Weedy Sea Dragon (Phyllopteryx taeniolatus) swimming along a rocky cliff like coral reef in Jervis Bay in New South Wales, Australia.
Sea Dragons are endemic to Australia with only two known species - the Weedy is the more common of the two species and is known from almost all of the cold waters found in Southern Asutralia.
