I'm glad this is over with! Now I can go back to shooting nudibranchs again. I submitted 68 species over the past four dives. I could have taken more but there aren't enough hours in the day to process more and upload them.

Kevin Lee joined me for a nice dive at Halfway Reef followed by a windy, choppy dive on the Barge. The highlight was an urchin shrimp that Kevin pointed out. It was willing to pose on the tip of my finger for several shots.
