This shot was taken during this years annual sardine migration. I had removed my strobes due to the backscatter and forgot to add weight, i was sat on the surface whilst my friends were seeing an awesome ball below, i was lucky to nail this shot.

Note the Y split at the top of one of the cerata of this nudibranch.
Over the years I have spotted three different nudibranch, different species as well, which had similar splits on their rhinophores.
