    Well, 2009 has started with a few dives so that's already an improvement over 2008! The nudibranchs are everywhere again and we have even found TWO new (to us) ones in the last couple of days. Can't beat that.

    Here's a little selection from the zillions we saw:

    01 - Chromodoris fidelis

    02 - Janolus sp

    03 - Tambja morosa

    04 - Cadlinella ornatissima

    05 - mating & laying Chromodoris geometricas

    06 - hungry Moridilla brockii
    [​IMG]

    07 - Flabellina exoptata
    [​IMG]

    08 - Gymnodoris rubropapulosa
    [​IMG]

    09 - juvenile Spanish Dancer Hexabranchus sanguineus

    11 - our second new guy thanks to my dive bud, Mary: Favorinus tsuruganus

    That's a good start ;) There are more in my Flickr stuff (KristinAnderson - sorry, new to it and don't know how to link it up), Facebook and in my blog

    More photos from the dives coming soon ... enjoy!

    These are great! There are almost too many great pictures here its hard to appreciate each individual one for their great detail and color. Great looking nudibranchs.
