Good read. Your photos are very good for a beginner. What kind of camera were your using?
My only constructive issue is the photo with the sea hare in someones hand. Sea slugs in general are apparently like ants and find each other through the sent of their trail. When photographers move them around, it cam interfere with their normal social/mating lifestyle. The best rule of thumb is to photograph them without disturbing them. If you find one that isn't in a good location for photography, skip him and look around, where ever you see one, you will usually find others. If for any reason you need to move one, be sure to put him back exactly where you found him (which will usually be near their preferred food source). Sea Slugs are one of the creatures at highest risk for damage by photographers because they are so easy to handle.
