Obyan Nudibranch

I went beachcombing at Obyan Beach with the BFF this weekend.  The day was hot and sunny and the tide was really low.  In the shallow water, I saw two nudibranchs (sea slugs) but only managed to get a picture of one (sorry, I only had my phone camera).  I think this is an Elysia ornata and it was laying down its egg mass.  The other one was probably a Thuridilla gracilis.  Nudibranchs are especially hard to identify and there are people who are really into "collecting" them in pictures.  Here is a picture of the bright yellow egg mass:
Beach time with the BFF are some of the best times.  Hopefully there will be more time in the water next weekend.
Ti napu.
