Hmmm, I think I might have messed up last week’s favorite of the day, and not made it public! It’s corrected now.
And now, for the Solomons 2006 Favorite of the Day, March 18, 2007:
This nudibranch (Nembrotha kubaryana) is trekking across what looks like moonscape. In reality, it’s a lovely lavender colored sponge, and I spotted him (her? it?) on a very current swept dive at the fabulous Solomons dive site called Velvia (aka Babycakes Reef in Newbert-speak). In fact, I got just this one mediocre shot of the nudi, before the current peeled it off the sponge and up into the water column, exposing its soft bluish underwear. Of course, it landed in a crevice with no worthwhile negative space and an awful angle. Ah well :).. At least I have this one shot of the nudi doing a moondance..
