Lembeh ‘06 Favorite of the Day, August 26, 2006    [ Diving,Photography,Travel ]

This is a pair of Moon faced Euselenops, which I’d never seen before. They are a type of pleurobranch, small (less than 2 inches in length), and very fast moving for a branch. I watched these two come swirling together in a dance before settling down to mate. This is another photo that is more about critter interest than about the aesthestic.

I’ve seen Chinese Dragon nudibranchs in several Indo-pacific locations, but the ones I’ve seen in the Lembeh Strait have been especially ornate and pretty. This one was in a lovely pose.

I am not sure why this particular photo appeals to me.  I think I like the form and flow, and the fact that the two slugs look a bit like mother and child, though I am sure they are not.

I like thorny seahorses and think they are one of the more photogenic seahorse varieties.
