Gallery: Wet: FEATURED: Flying Nudibranchs
As beautiful as Nudibranchs are, most of the time we only see them from the top.
I wanted to show more of them, so I gently release them into the water column and photograph them swiming and falling. This allows me to light them so only the animal is in the photograph, while the water remains black.
This process typically takes no more than a minute, sometimes two - as I fire off many shots on the way down.
At the end of the brief session the Nudibranch is gently placed back on his rock or kelp branch - unphased.
