Cratena nudibranch. These little creatures are tiny splashes of color in the sea. The hard part is getting focus..I usually shot many attempts but I'm happy when I get a nice photo!

There is a diving place here in Goa called "the wreck", an iron barge sunk here in the 50s. Here there are many nudibranchs of this type named "Flabellina rubrolineata" ..very small, about a centimeter or so, but beautiful for their bright colors.
