Felimare tricolor are quite common in the Mediterranean Sea but difficult to photograph due to their small size. I like the contrast between strong yellow & electric blue that distinguishes this species of nudis_2023

I took this photo one second before this Cratena nudibranch disappeared into the sea grass. I often enjoy waiting for them to emerge from some bush to photograph their big orange eyes!
That day the visibility was terrible, a meter or less .. at the end of the dive our guide pointed out these two Chromodoris trimarginata ,two white flames that emerge from fog ! Beautiful, colored with their red spots.
