    1. Thanks, Barry.
      This was not one of my favourite picture as I seldom want to take pics from behind/back side. However, it was too difficult to determine where the head of this Nudibranch was during the dive as when they are resting, they retracts their rhinopores (head side). But when I saw the picture after the dive, only then I realised it was laying eggs, which I didn't noticed during the dive :D
