Yellow Margin Spanish Dancer Nudibranch, Hexabranchus aureomarginatus
My friend Ben found this one climbing along a vertical wall in Lighthouse Cove during his reef tour. I jumped in to identify what type of nudibranch it was and was very excited to find a new one for me. It unfurled and danced a bit before my camera was brought to me. I tell people every day out in the water is like a treasure hunt...you never know what you will find.
