"Magic Carpet"



The Story: The sargassum frogfish is a natural camouflage master, usually inhabiting ponytail clumps and using it as a camouflage to prey on small fish. But when I found it, it climbed onto a leaf, as if standing on the magic carpet to start a new journey. I took advantage of the reflection of the water surface to capture this dramatic moment.
