Blue Heron Bridge – 05/31/12

Cratena cf. peregrina Nudibranch

Had a very nice dive on Thursday afternoon despite the gloom and rain.  It was a cool 78 degrees and mild current. Encountered a cooperative Yellow Garden Eel on the way out to the rubble.  At slack tide all of the common nudibranchs came out in force in “Nudi World”.  There were several large Sharptail Eels out hunting and on the move.  I was very happy to finally get a decent photo of the tiny “red and white” Flabellina’s.  And I found a spot by the wall with quite a few of the orange cheeked nudibranchs including one in a very good position for photography.  Most are shot with a +5 diopter.  Finally at the end of the dive with 110 lbs of air left in my tank, I came across a very large white tube anemone sticking way out of the sand.

      Thank you. It was in a very good position. There was a group of them over by the wall.
