Caption: Dragon sea moths camouflaged on a sandy seabed. The sea moth (Eurypegasus draconis), also known as a little dragonfish is found in tropical seas from the Indian Ocean to the central Pacific. The male differs from the female by having a blue-white pectoral fin margin, which it flashes when it is disturbed. The sea moth is known to make short leaps out of water, using its pectoral fins as a parachute. Photographed in the Bunaken National Park, North Sulawesi, Indonesia.
