They are very tiny and hard to see. I usually look for the white eggs on the Aglaophenia struthionides (Ostrich-plumed Hydroid) and then look for them. They are very tiny. I put a very strong wet mount lens in front of my macro lens to get those pictures. Because the depth of field is so shallow, and the surge moves everything those two were the only good ones I got out of 40.

I have taken pictures of them before, but not as good. I have seen them at East end of San Clemente Island, and on the West end of San Miguel.

Here are some previous pictures from San Miguel Island.
