Nudibranch Goniobranchis kuniei

This nudi is from a dive in Lembeh strait on the NE corner of Sulawesi in Indonesia.   This area is well known for the huge variety of critters found on the dive sites, they are not clean coral reefs but rather black sand and rubble bottoms and there is a huge range of marine life found there.

An incredibly colorful nudibranch!  Beautiful photograph, especially considering the underwater conditions in which it was captured.  Well done,

Really like the DOF on this one, get to see the gills and rhinophores (the "horns") tack sharp. Great color.
Love muck diving!

The flamboyant colors found in nature, on full display, captured beautifully.
