From the cold waters of the Pacific NW, comes a simple photograph of a common animal. This is the sea lemon nudibranch, Anisodoris nobilis, taken in Hood Canal, only a few hours drive from my house.

This is another shot from the trip to Thailand. It’s a wire coral goby, and tiny fish that lives on wire coral, fairly well camoflauged. This one has a parasite on each side where the gills are.

This is a white eye (or pearl eye) eel, photo taken on my trip to Thailand. It makes me laugh :).

Allied cowries are lovely little creatures in the mollusc family, related to nudibranchs and various other shells. Some of these live on beautiful sea fans and have beautiful matching camoflauge of their own in their mantles. This allied cowrie was on a fan in Papua New Guinea. The fan polyps are open, lending to a lush and colorful look.
