detailsAfter four days of excellent diving conditions last week, I was really anxious to see the slides. Just got them and I'm now scanning them. While I'm at it I though about sharing some of those (more to come).
I found these two blue striped nudibranchs (Hypselodoris villafranca) mating. I've seen loads of them but I couldn't help myself to get another shot. The only problem was that orange sponge they seemed to be hiding under...
As I looked more carefully at the slides I found that the "orange sponge" was no other than Discodoris rosi, another nudibranch! And the best thing was that this was the first time I saw one. Next weekend I have to look (even) more carefully.
Shot in Baleal, Portugal, using a Nikonos V, 1:1 extension tube, Nikkor 35mm lens, f/22, Ikelite 100a and Ikelite Ai strobes both on TTL, Fuji Sensia 100 ASA film.

Amazing colours again, and what a bonus to get two kinds of nudibranches in one shot!

Perhaps a little fuzzy but still a clever shot! :o)

I glad to see another season of your exceptional pictures.

Thanks to all for the comments.
#1 Fiona: I've had similar situations before. As we're dealing with such small creatures, sometimes there's an even smaller and more difficult to identify slug in the picture. Actually, after going through all my slides from last week I've found another shot (another day, another roll of film) of a Hypselodoris villafranca showing just near the edge the round shapes of the Discodoris rosi.

Great capture, you never now what you might find when you get home after shooting with the macro lens..

#6 Rick: you know it too, Rick. This photo was taken on the 12th of June and I only got back to Lisbon on the 13th... so I only realized I had captured a shot of this nudi precisely one week after taking the photo!
