Nature Reveals Some of Her Mysteries at the San Diego Birch Aquarium


You are looking at a rare white leafy sea dragon with leaf like appendages, resembling pieces of seaweed. This is their natural defense against predators. They are a close relative of the seahorse and are found in the southern waters of Australia and no where else in the world. 

The Birch Aquarium is a real treasure and one of the many joys of living in San Diego.

 Good Saturday morning William. Excellent picture of the Seahorse. There are many marvels in the ocean that we still have not discovered.

Horses of ANY kind are the joy of my life. I find this photo to be almost ethereal. What incredible creatures Mother Nature and God collaborate on for our pleasure!

The first time I saw one of those creatures at the Monterey Aquarium, I stood mesmerized for quite some time.  I thought I had been razzle-dazzled just prior when I saw a fern green colored one.

The white ones look absolutely mystical in nature!

That is simply spectacular. I really need to make time to visit this aquarium some time, even knowing I cannot take the memorable photo you do so effortlessly!

Hi Myrl Jeffcoat , Doing well and just been so busy trying to get some new properties ready for market. I have been meaning to get some posts done and just have not been focused on it enough. I will try later this evening when I finish work.
