Yesterday Point Loma Dives. Even a simple camera (and simple photographer) can make nice memories. Especially when my random dive buddy, Johnathan Lavan is a pro and pointed out some of the nudibranchs I would have missed. As always the crew was excellent.
Another great day as Underwater Naturalist aboard @marissacharters. Strawberry Field Ledges continues to amaze and Conner's Canyon Pinnacle was very nice as well. Captain and Scout run a tight ship and were barking orders right and left!! California diving is the best!!!

Can anyone name is this creature?

It's the Spanish Shawl! 🧡

They are a species of nudibranchs, a very colorful sea slug. Scientist believe that their gills are bright orange to help them blend in with their prey while eating.
