Blue Heron Bridge – 06/19/12

Trachycaris rugosa Shrimp (aka Deb’s Funky Shrimp)

Turned out to be a fantastic night dive via the “Little Deeper” dive boat.  Finally got to see one of Deb’s “funky” shrimp.  They are approximately 1/2″ long and like to pose for the camera, slowly turning and lifting their tail.  Deb showed me the first dark green one.  Thank you very much Deb!  And to my surprise, I found the second lighter green and pink one in nudi world. There were a ton of Dondice nudibranchs of all sizes out and I was lucky to capture two mating.  Other subjects are Blackfin Cardinalfish, Worm Eel, Bobbit Worm, a beautiful Lined Flatworm and a tiny hermit crab with pink eyes.

    Fun night. I have just got to get one of those 5 or 10X diopters!
    Great shots!
    I wonder what ever happened to Jimmy Durante??

    Awesome pictures. Thanks to you I’m seeing creatures I can hopefully find and know what they are.
