The Story: Cyerce nigra appealed to me as one of the best subject to snoot because the combination of their overlapping black and white stripes and yellow spots create a pleasant contrast with a dark background.  I have turned off the aiming light and waited until the nudibranch got used to my presence for my desired profile.
