Congratulations Albert, this amazing nudi is our Spotting of the Day:

"Spotting of the Day! This rather extraordinary image shows a nudibranch (Diversidoris crocea, family Chromodorididae) lay a ribbon of eggs on coral. Nudibranchs (from the Latin nudus, naked, and the Greek βρανχια, brankhia, gills) are a group of marine gastropod molluscs that only possess a shell at the larval stage. The head region of nudibranch shows a pair of sensory tentacles called rhinophores, while the feathered structures at the back are the gills. Diversidoris crocea is small (less than 2 inches in length), with a yellow-to-green body and a pale mantle margin. Originally described in 1986 as Noumea crocea".
