Jewels of the sea

I have an embarrassing confession to make (yes another one). Following some recent dives on the Sunshine Coast, I have become a nudi-nerd. It has taken a few years and many dives for this to happen, and I cannot even begin to describe the thrill and excitement of googling ‘white and black nudibranch’ to find out what species I saw (turns out they are all incredibly common!). Now all I want to do is find more nudibranchs! Uh oh!
