Tergipes tergipes is hard to find. The one at the picture is about 4mm length. The white eggs can be found easily. I made this picture last week on a depth of 2-3 meter. I tried to use low light, because otherwise the small body loose all details.

Sagartia troglodytes is so common in our waters, that most divers don’t even look at it. That’s a pity, because if you see them in close up you will discover the beauty of this animal.

The Acanthodoris pilosa is small (1-2cm) and hidden between the mussels. And of course not as colourful as it’s tropical brothers and sisters. But I like these small animals.

The Aequipecten opercularis shows his eyes only when you come with less light, and not to close. When there is any danger he will close himself (herself) and you see only the outside. These picture is made in the Oosterschelde, with less visibility.
