Atlantic Glaucus

Glaucus atlanticus

Notes:

An amazing nudibranch that floats on the surface of the water and eat blue bottles (physalia sp.). Unfortunately with high winds they tend to wash up on shore.

All the sightings you have of the Atlantic Glaucus are just fabulous, before looking at your photo series I thought they might be alike. But they are all very different and spectacular, great sighting and beautiful photos. I really enjoyed your work! :-)
