Nancy took this picture at the Georgia Aquarium in Atlanta. Leafy sea dragons live in the coastal waters all along the southern edge of Australia. They rely on camouflage for protection. Like seahorses, the males care for the eggs. After they hatch the young sea dragons are on their own. They grow to about ten inches. In the wild, only 5% live to maturity. In captivity, the survival rate just went above zero for the first time. Sea Dragons have been protected by the Australian government since the early 1990s.

Although I grew up in Garden Grove, California, I have lived here in South Miami longer than I've lived anywhere else in the world. I've been married to my wonderful wife, Nancy, longer than I was ever without her. We were both teachers. Nancy recently retired after 40 years. I have also spent time as an officer in the Coast Guard, a commercial property appraiser, and an electrical engineering student. Now I'm technical support for Bee Happy Graphics. That means I handle this blog, our web page, and all E-mail, I do all post-processing and printing of the images, I cut mats and glass and frames. If you have a technical question, I would be the one trying to answer it.
