Dave, I read your report on diving the Idaho pond :), I am affraid that soon we will be getting our share of planktonic soup to look through..
Dusty, here are some of the shots of Hooded (Lion) nudibranch eggs from the 2006 season:

Funny that the hooded nudis are winter creatures there; at Edmonds, they seem to teem through the spring and summer.

That reef is HUGE and just keeps going and going in a series of big piles. One of my favorite things to do was to peer off into the murk looking for a bright spot - that bright spot would always be yet ANOTHER huge rock pile covered with Plumose anemones. I gotta go back! - John

Thanks, BTW, how is your hand healing? Must be hard not to be able to dive...
Greg Jensen wrote:The interaction between the ribbon worm and the tube worm looks very interesting- if he's attacking it, I would think the tubeworm would have retracted. There is a local snail (Trichotropis) that steals food from tubeworms by sucking it out just as it is about to go in the mouth, and does it without causing the worm to retract. I wonder if the worm is doing something similar. Was his proboscis out? Was he in contact with the worm?
