Channel Islands July 2010

New photos from my recent dive trip to the Channel Islands.

I had some camera issues in the first couple of days, but things settled down by the time I got to the Macro photography on day 3. I like the perspective on the Nudibranchs. The last couple of shots may be of an embryonic Nudibramch.

The Gold and White Nudibranch is a Horned Aeolid (Hermissenda crassicornis), which is reasonably common in the Northern Channel Islands.

The Purple and Orange is a Spanish Shawl (Flabellina iodinea), also fairly common.
