A Few from the Barge

While Phil was documenting deterioration of the barge, he found more tiny Aeolidiella olivae for me to shoot. Less than 1 cm, there almost seems to be no minimum size for reproduction. They can usually be found on the barge under a piece of rust.

With every dive that we've made recently, we've seen more sections of the barge that have collapsed. Where the barge was once was a friendly dive, I would now advise caution.
