Honorable Mention Nudibranch

"Ms. Elegant"

The Story: 

Bornella anguilla is a very elegant nudibranch, well known for its capacity to swim like an eel, hence its name. It is not common where I live so I was delighted to find it during a night dive, seeing it moving and raising its head as is pictured in this shot. The night conditions and a fast shutter speed helped me get a black background, which puts the slug's colors and patterns in their best value.
