I was lucky to see this nudibranch before other divers from our group found it. I had plenty of time to watch and shoot while the subject posed for the shot.

Fly Point is located in Nelson Bay inside the large port of Port Stephens on the east coast of Australia. Nelson Bay is 2.5 - 3 hours drive north of Sydney.

Fly point is mainly a macro dive site with over 100 different species of nudibranch have been reported here. It is in a sanctuary (no take) zone in the Port Stephens - Great Lakes Marine Park. Maximum depth is close to 30m but most of the photography subjects are in the 5 - 12m range. There is a huge sponge garden which would take many dives to explore properly. It is also the starting point for our drift dive, which exits at another divesite called the Pipeline.
