Now that I have my camera back with me again, I'm always looking for what I think would make an interesting picture, or something from a different angle or vantage point. There are a lot of factors underwater that can throw you a curve ball though, such as the visibility, the amount of sediment in the water, the use of flash, and on and on. The great thing about using a digital camera is that you can just snap away and try anything you want, then just delete the pics that didn't turn out the way you wanted.
That's when I spotted this little egg ribbon that the bubble shell nudibranchs had been laying when I saw them earlier. It was very, very tiny but when I blew the picture up you could definitely see the individual little egg strings that made up the egg ribbon. The bubble shells are called Haminoea cymbalum, and evidently this is the season for them, so try to make sure you don't crush and kill them when getting in and out of the water, they like hanging out in the shallows on rocks.
