First dive was really sunny so I tried taking some upshots into the sun. Here’s one of my attempts:
40 - Glossodoris cruella
Ambo found this one for me at 80 feet. It was soooo beautiful. I don’t think I’ve ever seen this one before.
At night, we dove under the town pier. I know, sounds crazy but I’ve found it is usually one of the best places to find critters… and the Padre Burgos Town Pier did not disappoint. We found a ton of crazy critters, including three frogfish and a harlequin shrimp. Here are a couple new nudis found:
41 - Hexabranchus sanguineus
This is the mac-daddy of all nudibranchs, the Spanish Dancer. I was fine leaving it alone, but my divemaster wanted to see it dance, so he picked it up and watched the action. I tried to get a shot or two but they weren’t so good. Maybe I should have moved to video.
42 - Ceratosoma gracillimum
