I shot this Hermissenda crassicornis having what I believe are Triopha maculata egg's for breakfast. It was taken at La Jolla Shores.

Interesting image, Tracy. I wonder if the two compete for food? We have a lot of hermissendas here and I've never seen anything like it.

Margaret,
According to Dave B., they are opportunistic carnivore's.
